Gist Street has turned into a Pittsburgh phenomenon. This reading series turns the image of the solitary, suffering artist on its head and puts in its place a community of artists and writers and readers that gets together a Friday every month to celebrate life. It’s not about suffering, indeed. We’ll take ice cream and wine and literature and laughter and a raffle with a scarf any day.
