Meet Local Author – Richard Gazarik

Join local author Richard Gazarik as he reveals the wicked history of the Steel City.

Richard Gazarik spent more than four decades as a journalist in Western Pennsylvania.
He has won awards for his writing and investigative reporting into public and corporate corruption in Pennsylvania
and has written extensively about the bombing of Pam Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland,
the terrorist attack on United Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on September 11, 2001,
and the rescue of the Quecreek Miners in 2002.

Mr. Gazarik has spoken at our library in the past, and always puts on a great talk! Don’t miss it!

Copies of the book will be for sale for the discounted price of $17.
