Historical Society Program
Thursday April 20, 2017
Andy Nixon, an autor with roots in the area will review his books.
Nixon grew up in Clairton, and although he took Horace Greeley’s “Go West Young Man” advice literally by moving to LasVegas, his roots remained firmly planted in Southwestern PA. For years he wrote the humorous and informative blog, DrForgot.com highlighting current events and historical reviews of Clairton and its residents, past and present.
In his 2013 memoir, 50 Shades of Grades, My Journey Through Wacademia. Nixon found a broad audience from the hills of Western Pennsylvania to his current home in Las Vegas as he chronicled his academic pursuits from childhood through adulthood.
In his recent book, Three Lives of Peter Novak, Nixon brings the history of the Monongahela River steel towns alive with the story of the intriguing adventures of an immigrant from Bosnia.
Advance copies of Nixon’s books are available in bound and e-book formats from Amazon.com, local bookstores or at the Library event. For more information, see andynixonwordsmith.com.
The public is invited to this free event.
