MWO Book Club: Educated

  • Achilles Art Cafe (map)

MWO's Heart-to-Heart Series continues with its 4th monthly book club meet-up. 

We would like for you to join us in a discussion of our latest read, Educated by Tara Westover. An unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University.

Summary: Educated is an account of the struggle for self-invention. It is a tale of fierce family loyalty, and of the grief that comes from severing ties with those closest to you. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes, and the will to change it.

Don't have time to finish the book in time? No worries - come join us, grab some coffee and take part in the discussion. Still can't make it? Mark your calendar for 10/3 for our next meeting. Stay tuned for more details.
