Oreo Cookie Book Club: Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance

We met at the home of Norton Schwartz on February 15 and discussed the book ISIS—The State of Terror by Stern and Berger. The book covered the rise of ISIS, their recruiting methods and their ideology that will help them persist.
We discussed the alternate roles of the United States in meeting this threat to the Mid-East and the domestic problem it presented for us in confronting our prejudices regarding Muslim immigrants. Resolving these prejudices without damaging our values are a personal challenge that each of us must meet. Our next meeting will be March 15 and the book Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance will be discussed. If you would like to attend our book review group e-mail:
