The film adaptation of Hillbilly Elegy has renewed spirited conversations about the JD Vance memoir. Tom Eblen discusses it with Cassie Chambers Armstrong, author of an Atlantic critique of the film, as well as a new book detailing her perspective on growing up in Appalachian Kentucky. And we hear from the director and two cast members of the film “The Mountain Minor,” something of an antidote to Hillbilly Elegy, driven by the music of the mountains. | A future history teacher takes cues from 2020, a year like no other. | Poet Carrie Green discusses and offers a reading from her new release, “Studies of Familiar Birds”, a meditation on grief and the loss of a father | Scott Whiddon details the two-volume album of instrumentals, “Songs from Quarantine” by Archipelago | WEKU’s Cheri Lawson visits Kentucky’s “Kindness Capitol.”

    Two things that hook me this year were this book and the [url=https://thesiswritinghelp.com.pk/research-proposal]research writing proposal[/url] that I had to submit at the end of the year. Thank you very much for writing and making such a hard time pass by with ease.
