Friday, May 20 Heller Estate’s Special Pittsburgh Wine Dinner

Posted on

On Friday, May 20 we will  hold a special Wine Dinner and Book Introduction Event!  The wines will be from Heller Estate’s Organic Vineyard and proprietor Henry Heller will on hand!  The book, “Rust Belt Boy: Stories of an American Childhood” is written by Paul Hertneky, who has written stories and essays for over 25 years for numerous national publications.  I had the good fortune of going to college with Paul at Pitt and am happy to reintroduce him and his great work to an audience from his old hometown.   Paul escaped the Rust Belt after college but his memories of growing up in Ambridge will be rich reading for all that hail from this area.  Everyone that attends this dinner will leave with a book that they are sure to enjoy! See you soon!
