      EVENT DETAILS
      Eliese Colette Goldbach - Rust: A Memoir of Steel and Grit

      A Cleveland steelworker with an MFA—and several writing awards—Goldbach in her debut memoir gives a sharp, vivid, and loving look at a place she grew up hoping to leave. Though she’d always thought her ambitions lay elsewhere, after college Goldbach took a job at the ArcelorMittal Cleveland Temper Mill. The paycheck was part of the reason, but more important was her sense of loyalty to the town and its residents. In compelling vignettes, she introduces us to the group of observant Christians she grew up with and to her co-workers at the mill, evoking her sense of camaraderie with those who share the daily realities of laboring amid the danger of being crushed by a steel coil or burned by an exploding vat of molten iron.
