GPS: Educated: A Memoir – Feb. 23 @ 7:00


SPECIAL EVENT Community Read Tara Westover author of Educated Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 7p.m.

This inspirational memoir of resilience is a testament to Westover’s courage -as she struggles to reconcile her desire for education and autonomy with her desire to be loyal to her survivalist, isolated, and violent family. After her first experience in a  classroom at 17, her passion to be educated took her to Harvard University and Cambridge, where she earned her PhD.  Raw and powerful this award-winning book remained on the bestseller list for almost three years. Tara Westover will be interviewed in conversation with Heidi Stevens of the Chicago Tribune. This event will be a highlight of the 25th anniversary of GPS and live-streamed by the College of DuPage here.
