Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover  2018 …..Author 32-year-old Tara shares her memories of her awkward migration from being a self-educated girl living with her survivalist Mormon family in the mountains of Idaho, to getting admitted to Brigham Young University,  and eventually earning a PhD from England’s Cambridge University.  Why? While exhibiting some of the urban-rural divide in our country today, Educated offers an indictment of how a culture dominated by men can distort women’s and girls’ senses of themselves and the world. We also see that different people have different memories of the same events. Again, quite timely.
