“Educated - a Memoir”
by Tara Westover. How does one learn in an environment where public education is the enemy? Having never stepped foot in a classroom, she follows her older brother’s example and leaves her off-the-grid family in Idaho to go across the country for college and on to Cambridge for a PhD! This book speaks to the power of resilience, family, and how education can literally and figuratively change a life.
