Join us for a town-wide read of the New York Times best-selling memoir Educated by Tara Westover. Educated is a story of self-invention and the struggles of breaking away from everything you’ve ever known, including those closest to you, in order to find your own way. Copies of the book are available at the library for check out. A discussion will be held at the Sterling Senior Center on Wednesday, June 19th at 12:30 pm. There will also be two discussions at the library on Tuesday, July 2nd at 6:30 pm and Thursday, July 25th at 6:30 pm.
