Join us for a discussion of the book Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance.Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis—that of white working-class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck. (Synopsis from Amazon.com)
You can join us for just one session if you like a particular book or come to all of the sessions. There is no long-term commitment necessary. So that we know how many people to expect, RSVP to 314-434-3404.
RSVP to Angie so we know how many people to expect. There will be no book club in October due to the holidays, but we will resume in November with The Man Called Ove by Frederick Backman.
