WHAT MADE TARA WESTOVER'S EDUCATED A BEST-SELLING MEMOIR?

FREE WEBINAR: SEPTEMBER 10 (4pm PT/7pm ET). GRAB YOUR SPOT!

It’s the rare memoir that comes along and captures national attention with such intensity. Tara Westover’s Educated, published earlier this year to rave reviews, is the story of a girl born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho.

Educated is the newest coming-of-age memoir to land on the best-seller list, proving once again the appetite for stories about lives on the margins.
