      Brown Bag Lunchtime Book Group: EDUCATED by Tara Westover

      Bring your lunch and join our afternoon book discussion group. Books are available to borrow from the library one month before the discussion. Registration is required to Shelley Glick at sglick@wlsmail.org or call the library at 914-941-7072. Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her "head-for-the-hills bag."... As a way out, Tara began to educate herself… Her quest for knowledge would transform her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge. Only then would she wonder if she'd traveled too far, if there was still a way home (from WLS catalog). Discussion led by Shelley Glick, Reference Librarian.
