Book Lecture with Dr. Barbara Burstin - Sophie Mas...

Presented by The Frick Pittsburgh at Online/Virtual Space

Please join us for a special evening with historian and author Barbara Burstin, Ph.D., as she discusses her latest book about Sophie Masloff, the first female and first Jewish mayor of Pittsburgh who served from 1988–1994. Through photographs  and caricatures by contemporary cartoonists, we’ll enjoy recalling some of the highs and lows of Sophie’s life and the impact she had on the city and region. Drawing on newspapers accounts and interviews including with Sophie herself,  Dr. Burstin presents the first comprehensive biography of Mayor Masloff’s remarkable life. Dr. Burstin teaches at both the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, and has written extensively about the Jewish community in Pittsburgh.
