Bushwick Book Club: Tara Westover’s Educated
Tara Westover’s riveting, bestselling memoir of discovery and independence took the entire world by storm—now, it becomes a well of inspiration for artists in a night of original music.
“This story, remarkable as it is, might be merely another entry in the subgenre of extreme American life, were it not for the uncommon perceptiveness of the person telling it. Westover examines her childhood with unsparing clarity, and, more startlingly, with curiosity and love.” – The New Yorker
