Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance will be the February read of the month for the Jeffco League of Women Voters nonfiction book club. Vance writes, “Poverty is the family tradition,” and then includes the reader in a compassionate, discerning analysis of the white underclass. Loyalty and love, violence, verbal abuse and instability are different sides of this culture. Read the book ahead and then join us for a fascinating discussion. February club meetings will be on Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 1 p.m. For location contact Lynne at 303-985-5128. A second meeting on the same topic will be held Saturday, Feb. 18, 9:30 a.m. at Lakewood Meridian, 10695 W. 17th Ave., Lakewood 80215. The public is welcome.
