Steel City Readers

Steel City Readers, by Mary Grover, was published on 1 June 2023. It is in so many ways the book of the Reading Sheffield project. Based on the memories of our Sheffield interviewees, it is about reading for pleasure in Sheffield between 1925 and 1955. Paperback copies can be ordered from good bookshops and the free download is available through Liverpool University Press ( Stay in touch with us here, on Twitter (@readsheffield) and Facebook.

We are so grateful to everyone who donated to help us reach our fundraising target of £12,500 for Steel City Readers. The money enabled the publication and the free download. Your generosity amazes us.

Thank you.
