Come discuss Hillbilly Elegy with Caryn Neumann and Lori Parks!

The day before J.D. Vance delivers his Casper Lecture, there will be a discussion of his book Hillbilly Elegy, led by Caryn Neumann (Interdisciplinary and Communication Studies) and Lori Parks (Humanities and Creative Arts).

The event will be held on Wednesday, March 8 from Noon to 1:00pm in Room 124, Gardner-Harvey Library.

This is a great opportunity to talk about Vance's book with other insightful readers.  Have you read it and have a question to ask or a thought to share?  Have you wanted to read it, but haven't had the time?  Come to this session and learn some perspectives on this book about Appalachia, working class whites, Middletown, social mobility, and more.

All are welcome to attend.  Light refreshments will be served.

Remember, if you attend two or more of our TEC Lab workshops and speaker events in Spring 2017, you will be entered in a drawing for a Kindle Fire tablet.
