Join author Christopher Whitlatch as he shares stories from his book, Notorious Pittsburgh.

Hopes have been crushed. Fortunes gained. Lives celebrated while others were snuffed out too soon. In the shadows, where corners are cut, and ambition unchecked – that is where the notorious stories live. Step into the dark alleyways, back rooms and even board rooms with Christopher as he recounts Pittsburgh’s seedier past. Stories include Pittsburgh’s first bank robbery, a famous jailbreak, as well as several stories from Pittsburgh’s former red-light district and the prohibition era. 

Chris Whitlatch is an author, game creator, and nonprofit marketer, but he likes to be best known as a storyteller. For the past several years, he hosted two walking tours in downtown Pittsburgh, telling stories of Pittsburgh’s Notorious past. He collected those stories as well as several more of his favorites into this book. He has a journalism degree from New York University but grew up in Southwestern Pennsylvania and returned to the area in 2000.
