Online Book Study
DATE: June 5 – July 14, 2017
REGISTRATION FEE: $45 (purchase of book required)
In my summer tradition of reading interesting books that give us different perspectives, Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis is a memoir by J.D.Vance about Appalachian values of his upbringing and their relation to the social problems of his hometown. The book topped The New York Times Best Seller list in August 2016 and January 2017. This book will encourage a rich discussion on race, poverty and culture. Participants must buy their own copy of the book before the class starts. The book study will begin June 5 and end July 14. There will be an optional face to face meeting at the conclusion of the book study. For more information, contact April at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828.774.5681, ext. 20.
