Celebrating the HOLIDAYS with Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures!
Welcome to the Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures website! Happy Holidays! We hope you find time to refresh your soul with a great book during this busy season.
We update this page regularly so check back to find new information about all of our programming. Current program information is available by clicking on the individual tabs above or on the linked series titles below.
UNIQUE & AFFORDABLE HOLIDAYS GIFTS:
If you're searching for a one-of-a-kind holiday gift, please consider tickets to one of our upcoming events for adults, teens, or children. One of the most popular offerings of our entire season is still to come with U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor, appearing on Tuesday, February 4, 2014, in conversation with University of Pittsburgh Chancellor Mark Nordenberg. TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE! A soft cover copy of Justice Sotomayor’s best-selling memoir, My Beloved World, comes with many of these tickets. Click here to purchase tickets.
Also, books signed by many of the authors who have appeared with us this season are available at the Mystery Lovers Bookshop in Oakmont, PA. A quick call to Laurie Stephens or a member of her staff at 412-828-4877 is the best way to find out if they have the signed book you want.
PITTSBURGH ARTS & LECTURES UPCOMING EVENTS:
Literary Evenings, Monday Night Lectures features acclaimed writers of literary fiction and non-fiction appearing at the Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland on ten selected Mondays, beginning on September 23, 2013. Click for more information on the A-List writers coming for our 23rd season.
PA&L Kids and Teens events include programs for children, teens, and families. Click to see the full lineup and get your seats today!
PA&L Special Events are non-traditional programs with niche writers that appeal to the pop culture interest in all of us.
Single tickets are still available for many of our programs. If we don't have the seat you want, we'll put you on our waiting list. Some of our best seats are turned back at the last minute. Don't give up!
On behalf of the Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures staff and board of directors, I extend many thanks for your support and encouragement this past year. We take great pride in the fact that Pittsburgh is again on the list of America’s top literary cities. Our visiting, distinguished authors are full of compliments for our enthusiastic audiences. We could not present these unique literary arts programs without you!
We wish Happy Holidays to you all, including moments of quiet reading or laughing out loud over a great book with those you love!
