A #1 New York Times best seller, soon to be a major motion picture from Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, Hillbilly Elegy is J.D. Vance’s gripping examination of both his upbringing in a poor Rust Belt town and the growing concerns of working-class Americans. Vance strikes a chord with audiences as he shares his personal story of the impact of a social, regional, and economic decline. In this fascinating and timely discussion, he sheds light on an often-forgotten corner of the country, offering not just a powerful picture of how upward mobility really feels, but also the loss of the modern-day American dream.

One of the most respected women in journalism and the co-anchor of NBC’s Today, Emmy Award-winning broadcaster Meredith Vieira sits down for a candid, in-depth conversation. From her days with CBS News’ 60 Minutes through her 13 years with ABC News—first as chief correspondent of the news magazine Turning Point (where she earned her 7th Emmy) then nine years as a co-host of ABC’s The View and now as the host of Who Wants to be a Millionaire—Vieira shares with audiences anecdotes from the personalities and stories she’s covered and the lessons she’s learned along the way. She also brings the audience into her personal life, discussing how she has worked to try and balance her career with a commitment to numerous philanthropic organizations and an active family life that includes three children and a husband with multiple sclerosis.
