As part of the Bowling Green State University 2017 Common Reading experience, the university welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Clarence Page, syndicated columnist and senior member of the Chicago Tribune editorial board. Page will speak Thursday, Oct. 28 from 7:30-8:45 p.m. in the Lenhart Grand Ballroom in the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.

Like J.D. Vance, author of this year’s common read “Hillbilly Elegy,” he grew up in Middletown, Ohio, where “Hillbilly Elegy” is set, attended Middletown High School and went on to a successful writing career.

In his presentation, Page will address issues of culture and identity in the United States and share his perspective on topics raised in “Hillbilly Elegy.”

Common Reading author J.D. Vance will be on campus November 29 to discuss his New York Times best-seller “Hillbilly Elegy.”
