Evening Adult Book Discussion: Educated by Tara Westover

Wednesday, January 22, 2020

Join us for a monthly book discussion! Books can be picked up at the circulation desk ahead of time, and all are welcome! January's book is "Educated" by Tara Westover. "Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home."
