Humanities Book Discussion: Hillbilly Elegy

Monday, March 13, 2017 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

 
Heritage Center Room

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. This book discussion will be moderated by Professor Russell Brooker from Alverno College.

Russell Brooker is a political science professor at Alverno College. He received his Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Chicago in 1981. At Alverno he teaches a variety of courses on elections, American politics, African American history, and statistics. He is currently writing a book on the American civil rights movement from 1865-1950.
