“The Pittsburgh That Stays Within You,” is Available from PHLF
The book is beautiful and it has already begun to circulate. We are a very small library with a very small budget and opportunities like this one allow us to provide much needed materials to our patrons. Thank you for providing us a book. ––Jessica Beichler, Director, Trafford Community Public Library
There is a richness and depth of historic facts in this small book. ––Pat Schultz, PHLF volunteer
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 educational institutions, 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 600 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.
