Local Author Jonah Winter

We’re proud of our local authors!

Pittsburgher Jonah Winter has a new book out.

“In Steel Town, it’s always dark

and the street-lamps are always lit.”

Does that sound like anyplace you know? It’s the Pittsburgh of our grandparents or great-grandparents, lovingly and lyrically re-created in Steel Town.

Steel Town takes us into iron mill and the steel mill, where we’re on the job with the Hot Blast Operator, the Monkey Boss, the Crane Man.

We see the imposing Hot Blast Furnace, and watch a river of hot pig iron gush down a gutter in the floor. Terry Widener’s illustrations show us the power of molten metal flowing into the Open Hearth Furnace and the peace of a whispered prayer in an onion-domed church.
