The Hamilton Roddis Memorial Library is hosting a Book Club on October 23rd, 2017 at 6:00 p.m.For our next meeting, we will be reading  Hillbilly Elegy by J. D. Vance

Hillbilly Elegy by J. D. Vance  From a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, a probing look at the struggles of America’s white working class through the author’s own story of growing up in a poor Rust Belt  town.

 Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis—that of poor, white Americans. The disintegration of this group, a process that has been slowly occurring now  for over forty years, has been reported with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. In HillbillyElegy, J.D. Vance tells the true  story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hanging around your neck.
