Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J. D. Vance
Join us in September when we read and discuss the book, Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J. D. Vance. In this memoir, he writes about poor, white Americans. He shares about growing up in the coal-country of Appalachia and his years in the Marines and attending Yale Law School. This book chronicles struggles of poverty, poor education, unemployment, addiction, family dysfunction, and erosion of church ties all of which have paved the way to a “hillbilly culture”.
