WPRI Annual Dinner 2017

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Guest Speaker J.D. Vance

Wisconsin Club
900 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee WI

J.D. Vance is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller “Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis.”

“ ‘Americans call them hillbillies, rednecks, or white trash,’ writes Vance, a biotech executive and National Review contributor. ‘I call them neighbors, friends, and family.’ In this understated, engaging debut, theauthor reflects on his stormy journey from the coal-country Kentucky hollers of Appalachia to life among the Ivy League–educated elite.

“An unusually timely and deeply affecting view of a social class whose health and economic problems made headlines during the election year. Pointedly identifying the cynicism and willingness to blame others endemic among that class, he describes the complex malaise . . . that has left so many bereft of connections and social support and unable to find high-quality work.”  - Kirkus Review
