Description:

Join us for a discussion of a book that instantly captured the hearts of readers across the country. An American Childhood is Pulitzer Prize-winning author Annie Dillard's poignant, vivid memoir of growing up in Pittsburgh’s Point Breeze neighborhood in the 1950s. Annie Dillard's memoir not only documents her childhood, but delves into both the limits of memory and the strength in remembering. Discussion will be led by Frick staff members Lisa Viscusi and Kelly McMasters.

A program link will be sent to all registered participants.
