Tara Westover - Educated Educated

Tara Westover

Tara Westover grew up in Idaho in the shadow of religious fundamentalism. She was deprived of a formal schooling, exclusively exposed to extreme dogmas, and vulnerable to the vicissitudes of her father's mental illness and a sibling's violence . . . This is a harrowing memoir which celebrates the power of education to liberate, while also acknowledging the long reach of a traumatic childhood.
