Library Adult -- Lunchtime Book Discussion Group

Monday, November 19, 2018

Bring a sack lunch and join us for a discussion of "Hillbilly Elegy" by J.D. Vance. Pick up your copy of the book today at the Artesia Public Library. Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis—that of white working-class Americans. The disintegration of this group, a process that has been slowly occurring now for more than forty years, has been reported 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. 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.
