September Adult Book Group
Wednesday, September 25th 4:30 p.m.

Educated

In September, the Book Group will be reading Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover. 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.

October Book: The Devil's Star by Jo Nesbo

Books available at the Main Circulation Desk.

New members welcome.
