In June, we're reading "Educated" a Memoir by Tara Westover. We'll be meeting at the radio station on Wednesday, June 26th 6p-8p at (1600 Utica Ave S. St. Louis Park 5th floor-it's in the West End area). Dinner will be provided by Green Mill, and we'll have official book club t-shirts from MELSA! Plus, North Memorial Health will be joining us for a quick little "exercise" in the beginning. Click here to RSVP while spots last.
About the Book: Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.
Thanks to Kelsey from North Memorial Health for joining us for an exercise to kick off book club!
