Next Book Group, March 27

Educated for the March Book Group

By Susan Peterson

The St. Matthew’s Book Group has selected Educated by Tara Westover for our March meeting. Educated is a memoir of Westover’s early life growing up on a mountain in Idaho in a family of fundamentalist Mormons. This remarkable story conveys the beauty and power of her childhood landscape. It also describes vividly the severity, limitations, and violence that she and her siblings experienced. Westover recalls her confusion and excitement when she entered college (her first experience of attending school) and subsequently travelled to England to study at Cambridge. Educated has earned a place in many 10 Best Books of 2018 lists.

We will meet at the Hinds’ home in Charles House on Wednesday, March 27th at 7:00 pm to discuss Educated. As a bonus, Karen Catlin has agreed to tell us about her book, Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces.
