Join Rev. Linda McDermott in her Lenten book study of Tara Westover’s memoir, Educated. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Tara Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education offers: the perspective to see one’s life through new eyes, and the will to change it. Westover crafts an unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a Ph.D. from Cambridge University. This important memoir will explore themes of indoctrination, empowerment, and overcoming obstacles all the while connecting the reader to the universal question: “How much of ourselves should we give to those we love?” Join us during your lunch hour, bring your lunch, and let’s get “Educated.”
