SOS Book Discussion - Educated 

Join us for a discussion of the book Educated, by Tara Westover, one of the New York Time’s 10 best books of 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.  She stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and salvaged in her father's junkyard.

Her father forbade hospitals, so Tara never saw a doctor.  The family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education.

Then, lacking any formal education, Tara began to educate herself. She taught herself enough mathematics 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. 

Educated is an account of the struggle for self-invention, a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes and the will to change it.

Come enjoy wine, appetizers and great conversation as we discuss this powerful book!
