January Pick-Hillbilly Elegy

hillbillyI apologize for the tardiness, but we have a page-turner for January so I hope you all have time to get a good, thought-provoking read in over the Christmas Holidays. Bonnie has brought us “Hillbilly Elegy” which is described as a “passionate and personal analysis as a culture in crises -that of white working class Americans”. This is sure to be good fodder for an engaging discussion.

Hillbilly Elegy; J.D. Vance; click here to read a review in the New York times.

 

Bonnies other suggestions also sound great:

Whitehead, Colson, The Underground Railroad, 2016.  (novel, received The National Book Award)
Beatty, Paul, The Sellout, 2016.  (novel, Man Booker Prize, National Book Critics Award, etc.)
