Join us for an evening of books and conversation discussing Educated by Tara Westover. The award-winning work is her account of growing up isolated from modern society in southeastern Idaho. Her survivalist family eschewed mainstream medicine and education, and she grew up ignorant to major world events. Westover's thirst for knowledge persevered, however, and she gained admission to Brigham Young University, which led to Harvard, and then Cambridge, where she eventually received her PhD.
