Zoom Program: Tuesday Book Club – “Educated: A Memoir”
Tuesday, November 17, 2020
10:00 am - 11:30 am
The Tuesday Book Club meets on the third Tuesday of every month (with an exception here and there). We discuss a wide variety of genres but focus on popular fiction and nonfiction. Being unable to meet in person during the pandemic, we are having our discussions online through a videoconferencing platform called Zoom. Books chosen are available both online and in hard copy through curbside delivery.
If you would like access to the discussion or are having difficulty finding a book, please email JC Morgan at email@example.com
This month’s selection:
An unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University
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.
