Penguin Bookshop Writers Series: Linda Santavicca

An Evening with Linda Santavicca

Saturday, February 24, 2024
5:00 PM


We are delighted to have local author Linda Santavicca stop by the store to talk about her latest book, We Will Count Stars: Following Abraham, which underscores eight individuals who share their heartfelt stories on how God took their rendered pasts and used them for something unforeseen. Linda will answer questions from the audience, and sign copies following her talk. We hope to see you there!


A native New Yorker, Linda spent many years working as an actress, appearing in film, television and on stage. Of her numerous acting credits, she has appeared on SNL, in New Jack City, soap operas from ‘way back when,’ a plethora of commercials, Off-Broadway and regional theatre. Eventually she swapped out the stage for an office on Wall Street where she took on the role as ‘writer ‘in marketing and communications. Once she met her husband, Ed, she moved to Western PA where she continues to write for a clientele in need of business documents. She also returned to the performing arts, working with the Pittsburgh Irish Classical Theater and continues to audition with the hopes of ‘landing the part.’ She is one of the contributing editors for the SAG-AFTRA Industry Magazine and is a guest writer for several consulting firms. In addition to her professional background, Linda launched the podcast, Pressing Beyond in 2020 which has been nominated for the best female podcast by the People’s Choice Awards. This past December, Linda and her husband became grandparents for the fifth time. And when she is not at her desk, Linda is either on the run, training for her next marathon or skiing down a mountain in some far-off destination.
