Time: 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Harvard Riverside Stroll
Location: Roebling Murals on the Covington Riverfront (Riverside Drive 41011)

Marcy Taylor and Gary Heaton (both Harvard 1984) will lead a loop walk from the Covington flood wall murals past the Aquarium, over the Purple People Bridge, across the Serpentine Wall and Smale riverfront park and back over the Roebling Suspension Bridge. The walk is less than three miles, mostly flat. The goal is to enjoy the sites and company while getting a little exercise. We can stop in along the way for ice cream or adult beverages. The event is open to anyone who wants to join us. Families welcome. Be sure to RSVP online so that we can establish a headcount and send out updates in case of weather or otherwise (thunderstorms or bridge repairs will cancel the walk). There is free parking available at the Covington Landing lot "underneath" the Roebling Bridge. Questions, contact Marcy Taylor <mbtaylor5@outlook.com>.

Time: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Harvard Club of Cincinnati Book Club
Location: Bronte Bistro in Joseph Beth Bookstore (2692 Madison Road 45208)

Harvard alumni are invited to join the Harvard Club of Cincinnati Book Club for a discussion of "Appalachian Reckoning: A Region Responds to Hillbilly Elegy" by Anthony Harkins (Editor) and Meredith McCarroll (Editor). With hundreds of thousands of copies sold, a Ron Howard movie in the works, and the rise of its author as a media personality, J. D. Vance's Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis has defined Appalachia for much of the nation. What about Hillbilly Elegy accounts for this explosion of interest during this period of political turmoil? Why have its ideas raised so much controversy? And how can debates about the book catalyze new, more inclusive political agendas for the region's future? Appalachian Reckoning is a retort, at turns rigorous, critical, angry, and hopeful, to the long shadow Hillbilly Elegy has cast over the region and its imagining. But it also moves beyond Hillbilly Elegy to allow Appalachians from varied backgrounds to tell their own diverse and complex stories through an imaginative blend of scholarship, prose, poetry, and photography.
