Third Tuesday Book Club

Join us for a discussion of Hillbilly Elegy : A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J. D. Vance.

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

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. - Amazon.com

Copies will be available for checkout at the adult circulation desk.  No sign up is required.  Refreshments will be served.

YA Fiction Book Club

Teens and adults are welcome to join us for our monthly book club! Always held the last Tuesday of each month. 

This month's selection is My Life in Black and White by Natasha Friend. 

Summary: What if you lost the thing that made you who you are? 

Lexi has always been stunning. Her butter-colored hair and perfect features have helped her attract friends, a boyfriend, and the attention of a modeling scout. But everything changes the night Lexi's face goes through a windshield. Now she's not sure what's worse: the scars she'll have to live with forever, or what she saw going on between her best friend and her boyfriend right before the accident. With the help of her trombone-playing, defiantly uncool older sister and a guy at school recovering from his own recent trauma, Lexi learns she's much more than just a pretty face.
