Book Club - Chavs

Culture Club

Venue: TBC

Our Book Club read for September is Owen Jones’ ‘Chavs’. Here's the summary:

Owen Jones explores how the working class has gone from "salt of the earth" to "scum of the earth." Exposing the ignorance and prejudice at the heart of the chav caricature, he portrays a far more complex reality. The chav stereotype, he argues, is used by governments as a convenient fig leaf to avoid genuine engagement with social and economic problems and to justify widening inequality.
