Hi book lovers,
"Educated" by Tara Westover was voted as winner for January bookclub.
Here is an introduction from Good reads:
An unforgettable memoir in the tradition of The Glass Castle about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University
Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her "head-for-the-hills bag". In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard.

Food and drinks are available at the bar.
Please let me know if you are running late or unable to make it.
I am making note of "no shows" as other participants miss out on a spot and it's unfair.
