Contemporary Evening Book Discussion: Hillbilly Elegy, by J.D. Vance

December 13, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Hillbilly Elegy

This illuminating memoir of a young man growing up in the “hillbilly culture” of the heart of Appalachia is a powerful account of a life on the edge of plausibility, shedding light on overlooked lives and the impossibility of upward mobility for most. The author, who “escaped” into the Marines, then to college and Yale Law School, writes a moving, passionate portrayal of a culture in crisis and the loss of the American dream.

Moderated by Professor Mike Boecherer of SCCC

Copies of the books are available at the Reference desk. Everyone is welcome!
