“Tara Westover is living proof that some people are flat-out, boots-always-laced-up indomitable.” USA Today
Spend an evening in the company of Tara Westover, whose bestselling memoir, Educated, has captured worldwide attention. Growing up in rural Idaho in a radical, survivalist family, Westover had no birth certificate, no medical care and no formal schooling. At age 17, she decided to educate herself, escaping her family to eventually earn a doctorate from Cambridge University. Westover’s redemptive story shows how a young woman’s unquenchable thirst for knowledge leads her to break ties from an early life of hardship and brutality. From her unique experience, she explores the tension between loyalty to one’s family and loyalty to oneself and tells a universal story about the transformative power of education.
