Discussion: The Bridge Series Welcomes The Center for Hearing and Deaf Services

August 16, 2017 - 8:00pm

The Bridge Series is a new series uniting the Pittsburgh literary and activist communities to raise awareness and funds for local organizations fighting the good fight in these troubling times. Each installment will feature Pittsburgh’s finest writers and a special guest organization, with proceeds from the evening going directly to that organization.

The August 16th installment of The Bridge Series featuring the writers Christopher Jon HeuerToi Derricotte and Katie Booth, and the guest organization for the evening, The Center for Hearing & Deaf Services, Inc. (HDS) — was curated by writer and Bridge advisory board member Ellen McGrath Smith.

Ellen McGrath Smith teaches at the University of Pittsburgh and in the Carlow University Madwomen in the Attic program. She holds an MFA in poetry from the University of Pittsburgh and a PhD in Literature from Duquesne University. Her full-length poetry collection, Nobody’s Jackknife, was published in fall 2015 by the West End Press.
