Don't Cry for Us J.D. Vance: A reading by Appalachian Ohio Authors sponsored by Downbound Books, The Urban Appalachian Community Coalition and West Virginia University Press
The Appalachia depicted in J. D. Vance’s Hillbilly Elegy is not one we recognize, and the societal issues Vance pins on the failings of individuals and families are neither their creation nor theirs alone to solve. With Ron Howard’s film adaptation of the bestselling book poised to bring this damaging portrayal of a region and its people to an even wider audience, we invite you to join us instead for a reading from some of Ohio’s most respected Appalachian authors and advocates. Short readings will be followed by a conversation about the strengths and challenges of Appalachian communities, both urban and rural.
