The Pittsburgh That Stays Within You Is Available from PHLF

As a relatively recent transplant to the City of Pittsburgh, The Pittsburgh That Stays Within You will help me understand and get in touch with the soul of my new home as I work to introduce this city to others. ––Caroline Mount, Public History Graduate Student, Duquesne University

As a tenant of a historical property, we will use these books to educate our staff to answer our guests’ questions. ––Brian George, Grand Concourse Restaurant, Station Square

Thanks to a generous grant from The H. Glenn Sample Jr. MD Memorial Foundation, PHLF has copies of The Pittsburgh That Stays Within You, by Samuel Hazo, to distribute to schools, libraries, historical sites, and nonprofit organizations. A distinguished poet, author, and professor, Mr. Hazo was the founder and director of the International Poetry Forum in Pittsburgh from 1966 to 2009. This collector’s edition includes five essays by Samuel Hazo, written in 1986, 1992, 1998, 2003, and 2017, and photographs by 16-year-old Paige Crawley.

Following the book’s release this fall, PHLF has distributed more than 550 books to more than 30 organizations, including the Carnegie Libraries of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County libraries, regional university libraries, public and parochial schools, community development professionals, the City of Pittsburgh, and Allegheny County Bar Association.
