David Giffels is at Sewickley’s Penguin Bookshop tonight with The Hard Way on Purpose: Essays and Dispatches From the Rust Belt.
“The portrait painted here is an honest and revealing one, illuminating the cultural factors that have given a strange, shadowy sort of hope to millions of Americans,” went the review in Publishers Weekly, in part. “An interesting and occasionally moving portrait of a place that, despite its decades-long downward slide, remians, for many, a pretty good place to live,” said Booklist.
Giffels will be at the Penguin Bookshop at 6 p.m. tonight.
The store is located at 417 ½ Beaver St., Sewickley. The event is free.
