J.D. VANCE: HILLBILLY ELEGY AND THE URBAN-RURAL DIVIDE
MODERATED BY SALENA ZITOWEDNESDAY, APRIL 4TH, 2018 AT 6:00PM
STEWART THEATRE, TALLEY STUDENT UNION, NC STATE UNIVERSITY
J.D. Vance’s powerful memoir has sparked a national debate about personal responsibility, economic inequality, the 2016 election, and the widening cultural and political gap between rural and urban. Metro areas are growing, thriving, and increasingly progressive. Struggling small towns and rural communities see their values and opportunities increasingly under attack.
Those tensions are alive and well in the Tar Heel State. What explains this disconnect? Can public policy reverse the trend? Can elected officials help bridge the divide? Join us April 4 at N.C. State University, with reporter and columnist Salena Zito and bestselling author J.D. Vance.
