Union Book Group is Reading – ‘Educated: a memoir’ by Tara Westover

Thursday, November 21st, 2019, 1 pm at the Union Library


The Union Public Library Book Group meets on the third Thursday of the month at 1 pm at the Union Library. Books are available for check out at both the Union Library and the Tiverton Public Library. New members are welcome.

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.
