Playwright Cori Thomas comes to Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh to speak about her work, including her new comedy Citizens Market opening at City Theatre this March.

Full of laughter and life, this world premiere celebrates an ever-shifting and eclectic America. Cori is a co-founder of Pa’s Hat Foundation, a non profit dedicated to providing former child soldiers of Liberia access to education and job opportunities.
