What You Will Learn

In this study, we will discuss J.D. Vance’s book Hillbilly Elegy in which he takes a probing look at the struggles of America’s white working class through his own story of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town. It is the story of how upward mobility really feels. And it is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country.
