    Books and Booze: Educated by Tara Westover

    Members have chosen Educated by Tara Westover as the next book for our book club.  The Book Club meeting will be on Sunday, January 26 at a member's home near Hôtel de Ville.  The book was selected as one of The New York Times Book Review’s 10 Best Books of 2018.  It is the autobiography of a woman raised violently in a fundamentalist family that refused public services, including public schools and hospitals.  Getting an education required an irrevocable rupture with her family but allowed her to study at Harvard and Cambridge.
