Hillbilly Elegy
January 26, 2021

5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Prairie Rose - Memorial Union

New York Times best-seller Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis is a 2016 memoir by J.D. Vance about growing up in America's white working class. A deeply moving memoir with its share of humor and vividly colorful figures, Hillbilly Elegy is the story of how upward mobility really feels. It tackles the struggles of a family and culture trying to escape a legacy of abuse, alcoholism, poverty and trauma. A film version was adapted in 2020 and is available on Netflix. 

We are hosting a one-night discussion of the book and film Hillbilly Elegy. Students who sign up will receive a free copy of J.D. Vance's book. The event will begin with a book discussion at 5 p.m., followed by dinner and a showing of the film. This event is open to all NDSU students who register.
