Paola Corso to speak in Pittsburgh

On Sunday October 1 at 2 PM at the Carnegie Lecture Hall in Oakland Paola Corso will read portions of her book of short stories Giovanna's 86 Circles and Other Stories. (reviewed on this blog here)

The Tarentum native lives in Brooklyn, but will be in Pittsburgh to participate in the Coffee, Tea, and Read literary event sponsored by the Junior League of Pittsburgh.

Her stories in the genre of magical realism reflect her deep roots in Tarentum and the Pittsburgh region.

As a transplant to Western Pennsylvania I owe a debt of gratitude to Corso because her writings have helped me to gain insight into the lives and stories of the people for whom I care.
