The American Dream

That old saying “you can choose your friends but not your family” perfectly describes the experiences of J.D. Vance and the struggles of his family in the Rust Belt region in Hillbilly Elegy.



Local Authors

Our region is blessed with an abundance of local authors. Their books range from Children’s Fiction to YA Science Fiction to Adult Nonfiction. Nine local authors will gather on Saturday, April 8, 2017, at CLP Beechview. The Book & Author Fair will run from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM. Come and meet these remarkable folks and learn about their paths to publication. Three of the authors are highlighted here.
