Book Tour: Murmur, Cameron Barnett

Saturday, April 27, 2024 at 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Swisshelm Park Neighborhood


Programmed by Sherrie Flick and Hattie Fletcher in collaboration with Shiftworks.

In this walking tour inspired by local writer Cameron Barnett’s poem “Swisshelm Park,” we’ll explore the complicated history of this neighborhood at the southeast corner of Pittsburgh. We’ll learn about how this area developed over time, its connections to the Underground Railroad, the press, and the coal industry. Barnett will be an integral part of the tour, walking with us and reading from his work, while sharing insight into how his childhood here shaped his development as a writer. Barnett will also read new original work on this tour.
