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.

In Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J. D. Vance, the author tells the true story of what a social, regional and class decline feels like when you're living through it.  Please join us for this discussion to share your thoughts and ideas on this honest, compelling and riveting novel. 

Additionally, we are offering a book guide for all registrants which highlights the author's background, offers interviews and book insights, as well as topics and questions to stimulate the conversation.
