Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance

  • to
  • Needs a location

  • We will be the ones with this book
  • After catharsis, after hope, what I need most are understanding and compassion. In that spirit, we'll be taking on Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis. Sorry to bombard everyone with meetings today, but there's nothing like a book to help me understand the world around me, and in a world that's feeling very uncertain, very uncomfortable, and really very scary at this moment in history, I need a few good books and good friends (and some good booze) to get me to the other side. Hope we can do that together. 

    From Goodreads: From a former Marine and Yale Law School Graduate, a poignant account of growing up in a poor Appalachian town, that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America’s white working class. Part memoir, part historical and social analysis, J. D. Vance’s Hillbilly Elegy is a fascinating consideration of class, culture, and the American dream.
