REFRESHING READS

Educated by Tara Westover

Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists who spurned education and medicine, she grew up with no knowledge of the outside world and little exposure to more conventional lifestyles. But she was a survivor herself, intelligent and inquisitive. The particulars of her story are stunning, but it also gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes, and the will to change it.

“When you are a librarian you usually have the pulse of what's going to be popular, it's a perk of the job . . . and then you have the sleeper hit books that sneak up and even you, the librarian, can't place a hold! This is one of those books I've been waiting to read, and hearing about how heartbreaking, yet truly inspiring this book is, I excited to share it with you. Having a memoir about perseverance over trauma will start off our year, I think it's the perfect time.” -- Shannon
