December Monthly Book Club: Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance
December 2, 2017 @ 3:00 pm
December’s monthly book discussion will be Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance. Please join The New Haven Collective at Prime 16 in New Haven to discuss our December book. 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 Hillbilly Elegy, 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.
This is a very casual book club that is open to anyone interested in reading and discussing the book. In addition to discussing interesting and topical books, we will be trying a different restaurant, bar or coffee shop in New Haven once a month.
Time: 3 pm-5 pm
Location: Prime 16
Address: 172 Temple St, New Haven, CT 06511 (a few feet diagonally across from the Omni Hotel in New Haven)
Parking Information: Metered parking on the street or parking garage.
