Author J.D. Vance will be speaking at UC Clermont in Krueger Auditorium on Friday, May 19 at 7pm about his #1 New York Times bestselling memoir, Hillbilly Elegy.
This special event is sponsored by Clermont County Public Library and is free and open to the public. No RSVP required.
Mr. Vance writes about his Appalachian, working-class roots and his personal journey – from Middletown, Ohio to the Marines to Yale Law School. The Wall Street Journal calls Hillbilly Elegy “a beautiful memoir but it is equally a work of cultural criticism about white working-class America….[Vance] offers a compelling explanation for why it’s so hard for someone who grew up the way he did to make it…a riveting book.”
No RSVP is required for Vance’s 7pm speaking engagement, but seating is first-come, first served.
