AAUW Orange studies “Educated”

To The Leader

The Orange chapter of AAUW will discuss the book “Educated: A Memoir” by Tara Westover at its January Book-Ins meeting.  Member Juliet Smith will review and lead a discussion of the memoir through the Zoom platform, Tuesday, January 26, 2021, at 7 p.m.

Sarah Boehme, Book-Ins Chair, noted, “In the book ‘Educated,’ the author tells a story of growing up in a survivalist family in Idaho.  The author chooses to pursue formal education, which set her in opposition with her family.  It is an emotional account of learning a larger view of the world and finding a personal identity.”
