Because of her love of 'The Burgh' (Pittsburgh, PA), ZOE LUCKY and the Green Gables' Mystery is set in her favorite suburb, Oakland (a cultural center of libraries, museums, concert halls and higher learning). The author, Carol Coffey, attended TAM O'SHANTER Art Classes at the Carnegie Library of Oakland from grade school through high school. After classes she and classmates would roam the library, museums and music hall of the Carnegie Complex. The University of Pittsburgh Cathedral of Learning being right around the corner, they would visit the exotic nationality rooms, search for hidden passageways and peek at the peregrine falcon's nest outside the top steeple. It was natural for Carol to bring this scenario to light in her book, ZOE LUCKY and the Green Gables' Mystery.
