Book Discussion: Hillbilly Elegy

  • Downtown Presbyterian Church 121 Fitzhugh Street North Rochester, NY, 14614 United States (map)

Book discussion led by Kim McConnell

Registration appreciated, but not required.

Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis—that of white working-class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on 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.
