NON-FICTION READING GROUP Uppsala Educated: a memoir by Tara Westover Thursday 6th December at 19:00 Price: 150 kr for the book + 60 kr for the tea, cake and company
THIS MONTH we’re reading Educated: a memoir by Tara Westover. This is the story of Tara, who had no school records because she’d never set foot in a classroom, and no medical records because her father didn’t believe in hospitals. Westover grew up preparing for the End of Days, but decided to educate herself at the age of sixteen.
SIGN UP for this meeting either by dropping by the shop (and getting the book), or email email@example.com (or contact the shop in any other way, by all means!)
