"Authors and Anecdotes" Book Club: Featuring Kathleen W. Buechel

Join this week's featured author, Kathleen W. Buechel, in our virtual book club series, “Authors and Anecdotes”, as she discusses her book, A Gift of Belief.  

Philanthropy has long been associated with images of industrial titans and wealthy families. In Pittsburgh, long a center for industry, the shadows of Carnegie, Mellon, Frick, and others loom especially large, while the stories of working-class citizens who uplifted their neighbors remain untold. For the first time, these two portraits of Pittsburgh philanthropy converge in a rich historic tapestry. The Gift of Belief reveals how Pittsburghers from every strata, creed, and circumstance organized their private resources for the public good. The industrialists and their foundations are here but stand alongside lesser known philanthropists equally involved in institution building, civic reform, and community empowerment.

Join us as we not only discuss her book, but also dive into Buechel's personal literature collection, her favorite readings, and participate in a live Q&A!

Currently she serves as executive director of the Benter Foundation, a Pittsburgh-based philanthropic organization that helps individuals and communities thrive.
