Revising the Narrative on Rural America

Setup

Join two of the country’s most prominent rural voices — the authors of acclaimed but thoroughly different memoirs of growing up in rural American communities. They’ll address the similarities and differences between the experiences and their resulting outlooks, what they think urban Americans get wrong about our rural people and places, and how they are using their platforms to address some of the most complex challenges that rural communities face today. Stick around after the event for a book signing with Tara Westover and Sarah Smarsh.
