MOVED ONLINE  - LUNCH WITH BOOKS: "The History of Kennywood and Isaly's"

Kennywood: Behind the Screams takes long-time fans and new visitors on a walking tour through Kennywood by exploring the history at each ride and attraction. Founded in 1898, the park has layers of history that tell of changing architecture, entertainment, and regional history, all brought to life by more than 300 vintage photos...

The Klondike bar is America's favorite ice cream novelty. This book traces its history and the rise and fall of its creator company, Isaly's Dairy, which evolved from one milk wagon to a dozen plants that supplied its 400 delis and dairies by the 1950s.

The Lincoln Highway was the first continuous road to connect the coasts, allowing newly motorized Americans to cross the country by car. This book allows readers to travel across 100 years of the highway, from New York City to San Francisco, with stops at historic landmarks, bridges, taverns, movie palaces, diners, gas stations, ice cream stands, tourist cabins, and roadside attractions.

Brian Butko lives in Pittsburgh and is the nation’s leading authority on the Lincoln Highway. He is a founding director of the new Lincoln Highway Association. Brian creates books on unique slices of local history for his day job at the Heinz History Center, the Smithsonian’s home in Pittsburgh. He blogs about Lincoln Highway history at LincolnHighwayNews.wordpress.com.


Lunch With Books starts at noon in the Library Auditorium. 


"Lunch With Books" is the library’s flagship program for adult patrons. These lunchtime programs feature authors, poets, musicians, historians, and more every Tuesday at noon. Complimentary beverages are provided. Bring your lunch, feed your brain!
