Tara Westover (USA) was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she grew up preparing for the end of the world, with virtually no education or medical attention. Eventually, Tara’s quest for knowledge took her to Harvard and then to a PhD from Cambridge University. This extraordinary memoir explores the heart of education and what it offers. Tara Westover will be in conversation with writer James Roy.
