Pittsburgh Literary Round-Up

by Brian Tierney    /  May 20, 2011  / No comments



Sampsonia Way’s new, comprehensive, literary calendar lists events of all types and genres, and according to its editor, Renée Alberts, “fosters inter-community involvement and expands Pittsburgh’s literary scene through cross-pollination.”

This Monday you can head over to Fleeting Pages in East Liberty (in the defunct Borders) and check out a night of readings from the performance troupe Literazzi, which supports literacy in Pittsburgh. The free event, which features excerpts from T.S. Eliot’s “Four Quartets,” will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

And on Wednesday, Michael Wurster leads a discussion of poet Frederick Seidel’s Poems 1959-2009 at Coffee Tree Roasters in Shadyside. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. and is sponsored by Pittsburgh Poetry Exchange.

These are only two events in next week’s packed literary agenda. To check out more literary events around town, look at our detailed calendar. Read more about the new calendar.
