"Authors and Anecdotes" Book Club: Featuring Ron Donoughe

Join this week's featured author and painter, Ron Donoughe, in our virtual book club series, “Authors and Anecdotes”, as he discusses his book, Brownsville to Braddock.  

Brownsville to Braddock covers Southwestern Pennsylvania, which is steeped with a rich industrial history. Starting with iron, brass, tin, and glass production, the river towns—from Brownsville to Braddock—ultimately helped make Pittsburgh the one-time steelmaking capital of the world. With this industrial legacy in mind, Donoughe sets out to document the small towns in this region, one painting at a time. These towns face many significant challenges, yet there is still beauty to be found. The people he meets share their stories of family joy and sorrows, along with a genuine love for the area they call the “Mon Valley.”

Click HERE to be directed to the University of Pittsburgh Press website to learn more about Brownsville to Braddock. Purchasing options for the book is available on this site, and it can also be purchased at any independent bookstore of your choice. 

Join us as we not only discuss his book, the stories and paintings that go with it, and participate in a live Q&A!
