"Live a good life, and in the end, it's not the years in the life, it's the life in the years."

Read Educated, talk about it, and then listen to author

By on February 26, 2019 in Uncategorized with 0 Comments

Every spring, North Central Regional Library hosts a one-read program, encouraging everyone to read the same book, discuss it in their book groups or at forums held at local libraries, and then hear the author speak. It’s called NCRL Reads. 

This year, NCRL is asking everyone to read Educated by Tara Westover and then will be bringing the author here in April.

Born to Mormon survivalist parents opposed to public education, Westover never attended school and spent her days working in her father’s junkyard — until she decided to get an education and experience the outside world. 

Tara Westover

She was 17 when she first set foot in a classroom. After that first encounter with education, she pursued learning for a decade, graduating magna cum laude from Brigham Young University in 2008 and subsequently winning a Gates Cambridge Scholarship. 

She earned a Masters of Philosophy from the University of Cambridge in 2009 and in 2010 was a visiting fellow at Harvard University. She returned to Cambridge, where she was awarded a PhD in history in 2014. 

Educated is her first book.

Available at library

Speaking dates are:

April 12, Wenatchee High School, 7 p.m.

April 13, Omak Performing Arts Center, 7 p.m.

Copies of her book are available at all 30 North Central Regional Library branches or order a copy online at www.ncrl.org.
