I am notorious for giving people books as gifts.I can’t help it; it’s sort of what I do. Plus, I’m thinking that people kind of expect this from me, so there’s that reputation to live up to, y’know?
Books can be wonderfully personal things to give people – especially when they aren’t in the mainstream. Karen Lillis is the ultimate curator and champion of Pittsburgh’s small presses and independent books and her selection always makes me crave every single title she is carrying.
Small Press Pittsburgh will be at the Stephen Foster Community Center this Sunday, December 7 from 12-5 p.m. with plenty of incredible reads for everyone on your gift list. Event details are above.
The Stephen Foster Community Center is located at 286 Main Street, which is halfway down the hill (between Penn and Butler). It is right behind the library in Lawrenceville. The parking lot entrance is on Fisk Street right next to the library.

About Readin’at: One of the things I’ve come to love about Pittsburgh is how much this city embraces books and writing and the authors who bring stories to life. We’re quite the literary town. As a way to celebrate all things bookish in the Burgh, I created “READIN’AT,” a weekly blog feature here that focuses on Pittsburgh-based novels and stories, authors, events, and literary goings-on around town (or …tahn).
