If your ticket includes a book and you cannot attend the event we cannot guarantee that we will have a copy of the book for you after the event. Please contact us for availability at

The ticket includes the book—can I get a ticket without a book at a lower price?

We were able to get the author to come to Pittsburgh by guaranteeing that each ticket will include a book, in lieu of an honorarium. Because of the logistics of getting everyone into the hall we cannot make a separate ticket price that doesn’t include the book.

Single Tickets for Ten Evenings

Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures offers single tickets in addition to subscriptions. Because not everyone can subscribe, we are happy to sell tickets to individual programs and will work to accommodate your needs. Seating for individual ticket holders is based on availability following the seating of subscribers.

Ticket Exchanges & Returns

All full season or partial season subscribers may exchange tickets during the season or return them for tax credit if unable to attend.
