On May 15, 2010, author Deborah Rudacille read from her new book, “Roots of Steel: Boom and Bust in an American Mill Town.” It’s the saga of the Sparrows Point plant. The event, a 510 Readings, took place at Minas Gallery, in Hampden, in Baltimore, MD. Michael Kimball served as the moderator and introduced Ms. Rudacille. “Kirkus Reviews” said of Ms. Rudacille’s tome, “An affecting portrait of decaying loop on the Rust Belt...[She] has delivered a book that would do Studs Terkel proud, partaking of his oral-historical approach to the past, at turns, imbued with pro-Labor spirit throughout.”
