February 2019 – Book of the Month

Educated Book Tara Westmover
One of the book clubs that met in the store this month read “Educated” by Tara Westover. It is an account of the struggle for self-invention, a tale of fierce family loyalty and of the grief that comes with severing the closest of ties. Raised in a Mormon-survivalist home, Tara self-educates until the age of 17 when she is admitted to Brigham-Young University. This is her first novel.

“Tara’s process of self-discovery is beautifully captured. It’s the kind of book that I think everyone will enjoy, no matter what genre you usually pick up. She’s a talented writer, and I suspect this book isn’t the last we’ll hear from her. I can’t wait to see what she does next.” – Bill Gates
