The next meeting of the Flemington Library Morning Book Club will be on Thursday, April 20, at 10:30 am. We will be discussing Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance. All are welcome.
A Yale Law School graduate’s account of his traumatic hillbilly childhood and the plight of America’s angry white working class. “Americans call them hillbillies, rednecks, or white trash,” writes Vance, a biotech executive and National Review contributor. “I call them neighbors, friends, and family.” In this understated, engaging debut, the author reflects on his stormy journey from the coal-country Kentucky hollers of Appalachia to the declining Rust Belt to life among the Ivy League–educated elite.
