Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, her parents eschewed a formal education for their children.Tara began to educate herself. She taught herself enough mathematics and grammar to be admitted to Bringham Young University, where she studied history, learning for the first time about important world events like the Holocaust and the civial rights movement. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and Cambridge. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home. Facilitator: Teague Bohlen, Associate Professor of English
