A Little About
August Wilson House
The building at 1727 Bedford Avenue in Pittsburgh's Hill District is at the Heart of American Literary History.
The heart of the AWH will always be the small family home within the larger house. Combined, they will be a spiritually-rich cultural hub for the Hill and larger Pittsburgh community, offering signature theatrical productions and events, art exhibitions and literary workshops, roundtable discussions and classes in the tradition of the Black Arts Movement.
Brought to fruition, the AWH will honor August’s mother, Daisy, who taught him to read when he was four, was disappointed when he dropped out of school but lived to see his first play on stage.
As August honored her legacy by passing it forward, so we will do with his.
