Join Cameron Barnett on Walking Tour of Swisshelm Park

April 16, 2024

Book Tours is a series of literary walks designed by writers Hattie Fletcher and Sherrie Flick that serve to explore, reveal, revise, and renew perceptions of Pittsburgh and the writers and writing it has inspired.

On April 27, 2024, join AHP’s very own Cameron Barnett for his tour of Swisshelm Park. In this walking tour inspired by Cam’s poem “Swisshelm Park,” (from his newest collection, Murmur) attendees will explore the complicated history of this neighborhood at the southeast corner of Pittsburgh. We’ll learn about how this area developed over time, its connections to the Underground Railroad, the press, and the coal industry. Cam will be an integral part of the tour, walking with us and reading from his work, while sharing insight into how his childhood here shaped his development as a writer. He will also read new original work on this tour!
