Hillbilly Elegy - July 30

At our June 25th bookgroup, we discussed Dry by Jane Harper. Most of the group enjoys mysteries, and this one held us all to the end.  Definitely a quick read for the group and well received. We had the Oreo brownie from Frosted which was excellent!

Our next bookgroup meeting will be Monday, July 30 at 3pm in the Library's large meeting room.  The book is Hillbilly Elegy J.D. Vance.  Copies of the book are available at the library desk and discussion sheets can be picked up or are available online.  

Summary: "J. D. Vance's grandparents moved north from Kentucky's Appalachia region to Ohio in the hopes of escaping the dreadful poverty around them. However, Vance's family struggled profoundly with the demands of their new middle-class life, and were never able to fully escape the legacy of poverty. A deeply moving memoir with its share of humor and colorful figures, Hillbilly Elegy is is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country."
