Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover | Conversation Starters
“Educated” is the tale of Tara Westover’s discovery of self and a world she had never known. Raised as a survivalist in the mountains of Idaho, Westover never knew much of the outside world. She spent her time in the wilderness preparing for the end of the world with her family. Illnesses were treated with herbal medicine. Food was gathered and prepared by the family. The first time she heard of the world outside her bubble was when her older brother decided to leave this isolated life and go to college. He returned with tales of a whole other world outside their little community and Tara was fascinated. She did all she could to prepare for the ACT—a difficult task having never received a formal education—and she got into a university. “Educated” is a memoir about Tara’s journey into the great unknown of the real world.
“Educated” became a New York Times Bestseller not long after its released and made Amazon’s top 100 Best Sellers book list. No small feat for the first time author.
