Big Blue Book Club

Big Blue Book Club is back with Heartland: A Memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth by Sarah Smarsh.

This book is an eye-opening memoir about working-class poverty in America. Our discussions will help participants understand the impact that economic hardship and inequality have on our communities. Heartland is a descriptive and emotion-packed retelling of the author's and her family's intergenerational experience of America's wealth gap. 
The first Big Blue Book Club series for 2024 will be April 11, 18, and 25. Each Thursday morning session will be presented via Zoom at 11 a.m. EDT. We will record the sessions, so if you aren't available during the day, you are welcome to participate via the recording.  Registration will open at 9 a.m. EST on Feb. 1 at The link will not be active until registration opens.
