BIG BLUE BOOK CLUB REGISTRATION BEGINS- McCracken County Cooperative Extension Service
o Big Blue Book Club is back with Heartland: A Memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth by Sarah Smarsh. This book is an eye-opening memoir about working-class poverty in America. Our discussions will help participants understand the impact that economic hardship and inequality have on our communities. Heartland is a descriptive and emotion-packed retelling of the author and her family’s intergenerational experience of America’s wealth gap.
The first Big Blue Book Club series for 2024 will be held on April 11, 18, and 25. Each Thursday morning session will be presented via Zoom at 11:00 am EDT. Each session will be recorded, so if you aren’t available during the day, you are welcome to participate via the recording.
Registration will open on February 1st at 9:00 am EST via https://ukfcs.net/BBBC24book1. The link will not be active until registration opens. The first 200 registered participants will receive a free copy of the book. Free books must be picked up at your local Extension office after you receive notification that you are one of the book recipients. We are excited to read with you this year!
