CANCELLED - Missing Pieces: Overlooked Stories about the Carnegie Museums and Library

Tuesday, October 26 | 10:00 a.m. — 12:30 p.m.
Longwood at Oakmont Ballroom
500 Route 909, Verona, PA 15147


Join Robert J. Gangewere, former editor of Carnegie Magazine and adjunct professor of English at Carnegie Mellon University, as he details the rich histories and overlooked stories of the Carnegie Museums and Library. You will be amazed by the turmoil, constraints and cultural tides that have influenced their caretakers and collections.

As a leading expert on Andrew Carnegie, Mr. Gangewere will pull these
dynamic histories from obscurity with skillful grace and flair. And as rumor has it, he has a knack for reminding audiences of their own overlooked memories of Pittsburgh’s museums and public library system. His 2011 book, Palace of Culture: Andrew Carnegie’s Museums and Library in Pittsburgh, is considered to be the definitive history of these renowned institutions.

What a great way to experience the culture of learning that inspires Longwood Living! Here, educational classes and activities conveniently connect residents to “wow!” every day. Impressive guest speakers like Mr. Gangewere often come to campus to engage and inspire minds, as do popular area musicians, entertainers and experts in other thought-provoking fields. What’s more, many Longwood residents impressively form their own committees to tackle relevant issues and hold Longwood TED talks to share their knowledge, expertise
and amazing life stories! We hope you’ll join us and look forward to telling you about a 2021 move-in incentive exclusively for attendees!

Space for Missing Pieces is limited. Reserve your seat today by calling 1-877-455-8163 or by filling out the form on this page. A complimentary buffet luncheon will follow Mr. Gangewere's presentation! 

*To ensure a safe event experience, all attendees will be asked to wear masks while indoors and participate in a pre-entry screening that includes a temperature check.
