Adam HochschildHello Pittsburgh!


I hope the beginning of fall is treating you all well. Who doesn’t love a little bit of sweater weather?


Good news – our next writer is coming on Thursday, October 16th at 8:30pm! Adam Hochschild is an accomplished author, journalist, and lecturer. He primarily focuses on non-fiction books since he believes he lacks “the ability to invent characters.”


Hochschild’s books have been translated into five languages and have won prizes from the Overseas Press Club of America, the World Affairs Council, the Eugene V. Debs Foundation, and the Society of American Travel Writers. Three of his books — including King Leopold’s Ghost — have been named Notable Books of the Year by The New York Times Book Review and Library Journal. King Leopold’s Ghost was also awarded the 1998 California Book Awards gold medal for nonfiction.


More excerpts, videos, and pictures coming soon!


Please join us for our second reading of the 2014/15 season with Adam Hochschild on Thursday, Oct. 16 at 8:30pm in the Frick Fine Arts Auditorium. Free and open to the public.
