Meets Bi-Monthly on the Second Thursday, 7:00 p.m.

On Thursday, September 12th,  the Conversations book group will be meeting at 7:00 p.m. in the Conference Room to discuss Educated – A Memoir by Tara Westover.  This is a riveting, real life story about a young Mormon girl and her survivalist family in Idaho.  With a violent older brother and a charismatic father who answered only to the Lord, life was not easy.  Though nominally home schooled, Tara was 17 before she set foot in a real classroom.  Despite her fathers objections, she broke away from her family and attended college.  This book raises difficult questions. Did her upbringing include child abuse?  Can people be too enthralled by religious principles?  What do children owe their parents?  When are families asking too much?  Can education change ideas and lives?  Join us to discuss this inspiring and disturbing biography.
