book 93

September 16 @ 7:00 PM: Flight 93 : the story, the aftermath, and the legacy of American courage on 9/11 presented by Tom McMillan                FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC                                                

BIO - Tom McMillan has spent a lifetime in media and communications — as a newspaper reporter for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, among others; as a radio talk show host; and for the past 19 years as vice president of communications for the Pittsburgh Penguins — but he also is a lifelong history buff. He serves on the board of trustees of Pittsburgh’s Heinz History Center, on the board of directors of the Friends of Flight 93 and on the marketing committee of the Gettysburg Foundation. In addition, he is a tour guide for the Civil War Room at Carnegie Library in Carnegie, which is named for one of his ancestors, Thomas Espy. McMillan is an alumnus of Point Park University, where he earned a degree in journalism and communications, and where he currently is co-director of the Pittsburgh Center for Sports Media and Marketing. He is donating all author’s proceeds from the book to the Flight 93 National Memorial

United Airlines Flight 93 is perhaps the most famous flight in modern American history. Amazingly, the definitive account of this seminal event had not been written — until Tom McMillan delivered Flight 93: The Story, The Aftermath, and The Legacy of American Courage on 9/11. Flight 93 offers a complete and riveting narrative of what actually took place — from the origins of al-Qaeda’s plot in 1996 through the dedication of the national memorial on the 10th anniversary in 2011.

BNY Mellon Presents:

Amanda Van Story Lewis in Concert

An Emerging Artist Performance 

Thursday, September 17 at 7:30pm

This past January, the ACFL&MH was enthralled with a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article highlighting budding opera singer Amanda Van Story Lewis. Aspiring artist by night and singing receptionist for Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto by day, Amanda is no stranger to the spotlight.

Lewis, 33,is a classically trained singer born in Washington, DC with a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Classical Voice Performance from Howard University. There she received instruction from Dr. James Moore and Dr. J.W. Norris. During that time, she also studied at the Academia D’ell Arte in Arezzo, Italy where she focused on opera and physical theater; and she trained with Francesca Francalanci of Florence, Italy, culminating in a solo concert.

Amanda has been fortunate to perform as a featured soloist for such prestigious events as: the 10th Anniversary of the African American Civil War Memorial in Washington DC, the Congressional Black Caucus’s Black Women’s Agenda in 2008, and the National Walk for Epilepsy 2010 where she sang the National Anthem. Amanda has also performed in Joyce Garett’s Choir for the 2007 and 2008 Kennedy Center Honors.

Amanda is an accomplished pageant winner, having served as Miss Black District of Columbia USA 2008, and Miss District of Columbia International 2009.

Ms. Van Story Lewis moved to Pittsburgh and in 2010 received a fellowship from the August Wilson Center for African American Culture. She is currently being mentored by retired professional opera singer, Ross Dacal. This September she will make her “Carnegie Carnegie” Hall debut with traditional pieces from Mozart, Schubert and Debussy–as well as two spiritual selections.

General Admission $10 in advance, $15 at door on day of event

An after-performance supper reception throughout the ACFL&MH’s historic landmark facility follows the concert. Audience members will be the first to preview the just restored Library interior. (Slated to re-open October 25.)

Proceeds from “Carnegies in Concert” benefit the campaign to restore and revitalize the Library & Music Hall.
