Last week, the Lake County League of Libraries and our friends at Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library hosted an interview last week with Eliese Colette Goldbach, the author of Rust: A Memoir of Steel & Grit.
The program was recorded, so those who couldn’t attend could still enjoy it.
In Rust, Colette discusses her experiences working in the ArcelorMittal steel mill, as well as sexual assault, bipolar disorder, and arguing about politics with your parents. In short, she is a brave memoirist who is not afraid to tackle BIG topics.
In the video above, Goldbach shares a reading from Rust, and then she answers questions on topics both big (like how writing a memoir can affect one’s mental health) and decidedly less big (her favorite Star Trek captain.)
The Lake County League of Libraries is a programming collaborative that unites the public libraries in Lake County, Ohio — Willoughby Eastlake, Mentor, Morley, Wickliffe, Kirtland, Perry, Madison, and Fairport Harbor — as well as the Lakeland Community College Library and the Lake Erie College Library.
