Duquesne Professor, Graduates to Retell Stories for Hill House Community, Grocery Story Celebration
As part of the Hill House Community Day, Dr. Susan Goldberg, Duquesne University assistant professor of psychology, and University psychology alumni will perform live public readings of Hill District stories.
The readings by Goldberg and her former students are abbreviated versions of stories presented in 2012 as part of the Hill House Association's 1000 Stories project. These stories, composed of personal accounts from Hill District residents, will focus on meaning, loss of meaning and connection to community.
The event is hosted by the Hill House Economic Development Corporation in honor of the opening of the Centre Heldman Plaza, supplying employment, services for residents and the first full-service grocery store in the Hill District in more than 30 years.
In addition to the public readings, Community Day will feature performers and entertainment, an activity area for children, games, health and wellness screenings and refreshments.
When: Saturday, Oct. 19, at 1 p.m.
Where: Hill House's Kaufmann Center, Centre Avenue.
Admission: Free and open to the public.
