  "Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis"  05/29/2018 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM Chapel at The Oaks

Shreveport, LA 71115

Guest Speaker:

Mary Ann Whited, retired teacher

J.D. Vance's memoir is a poignant account of growing up in a poor Appalachian town. This timely book, though, is a broader picture of the struggles of working class America, a portrait of class, culture and the American dream. Vance, former Marine and Yale Law School graduate, tells his story through personal family history and shares how he still can't escape the legacy of abuse, poverty, and trauma.

Guest Speaker:

Jacqueline Gore, retired teacher

Beloved reviewer Jacqueline Gore returns to The Oaks with an engaging review of Susan Wittig Albert's novel "The General's Women." The book is set during World War II and is the story of Dwight D. Eisenhower, a world class general who later becomes President of the United States, and his relationship and subsequent affair with his driver, Kay Summersby, and the impact their relationship has on Mamie Eisenhower. The relationship grows as Ike faces challenge after challenge in defeating Hitler and Mamie waits at home listening to the vicious gossiping of "friends."
