Every town has ghosts and the late George Romero is Pittsburgh's beloved boogeyman!
Romero still looms large there, and I was honored to visit the George A. Romero Archival Collection (1962-2017) at the Hillman Library at the University of Pittsburgh.
Horror Studies Collection Coordinator Ben Rubin sat for an interview and gave me a tour of the vast collection that documents his career through the ups and downs and how Pittsburgh became "the Zombie Capitol of the World."
I hope you like the show!
Special thanks to Ben Rubin and the Hillman Library at the University of Pittsburgh for their kind cooperation.
