Here’s what’s happening around town: Wednesday, Nov. 28


Hello, Sewickley!

Happy mid-week!

This time of year, there are many ways to shop for a cause, and tomorrow night, Penguin Bookshop at 417 Beaver St. is giving you a great way to do just that.

From 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 29, the shop will host an open house book benefit for Safe Passage in Guatemala, a refuge for children facing difficult situations marked by extreme poverty, neglect and abuse.

Bridge & Tunnel Books and the Penguin Bookshop invite you to stop by for a glass of wine, cheese and crackers and some shopping. Twenty percent of the evening’s proceeds will go to Safe Passage, which acts as a gateway out of poverty. Every day, Safe Passage provides nearly 500 children and 100 parents with education, social services and the chance to move beyond the circumstances their families have faced for generations.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
