All Booked Up Book Discussion Group: Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover

Saturday, December 8, 2018

Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world. In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father’s junkyard. Her father forbade hospitals, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. The family was so isolated that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when Tara’s older brother became violent. Then, Tara began to educate herself. She taught herself enough math and grammar to be admitted to Brigham Young University. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home. Registration not required. For more information, visit www.cityofparkland.org/library or call (954)757-4207.
