Write right: We’ve spoken recently about several authors who have had works published of late. Dr. Bill King did a terrific autobiography of a lad growing up in Elrama and going to school in the “big city” of Clairton. Joann Little Angelo did a five part series of the Monongahela Chronicles which does a superb job of tracing union history and describing Wilson as it was at the turn of the century when there were little more than a few hollow where folks resided. Both authors’ books are page turners.
Something new: As I was perusing the various research engines looking for something new about Clairton I stumbled across another Clairton author who had written an autobiography entitled “From Rings to Ringlets.” The title captured my attention as did the fact that the author, Marcel (nee Jimmy) Haigy was a former Clairton resident, so I dug deeper.
