Join us to discuss the 2016 "Hillbilly Elegy" by JD Vance.

About this month's title:

From a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, a powerful account of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America's white working class.

A deeply moving memoir with its share of humor and vividly colorful figures, Hillbilly Elegy is the story of how upward mobility really feels. And it is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country.

A limited number of physical copies of the selected title are available in advance at the Belt Branch for check out. This selection is also available digitally on the library's Overdrive and TS360 app. 

This program is for adults 18+.  Discussion will be held virtually via Zoom. Advance registration required- meeting details will be e-mailed the day before the program.
