Saint Mary’s College of Notre Dame, Indiana, presents “An Evening with Tara Westover” at 4 p.m. CST Wednesday, September 16. Set in conversation with Saint Mary’s president Katie Conboy, Westover discuses her memoir, Educated, and answers some of the most asked questions about her journey.

The book explores her struggle to reconcile her desire for education and autonomy with family loyalty.

Educated was an instant commercial and critical success, debuting at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and remaining on the list for more than a year. It was also a finalist for a number of national awards, including the L.A. Times book Prize, and the National Book Critics Circle Award. The New York Times named Educated one of the 10 Best Books of 2018, and the American Booksellers Association voted it the Nonfiction Book of the Year. For her staggering impact, TIME Magazine named Westover one of the 100 most influential people of 2018.

This is a free virtual event but donations to the Saint Mary’s College Student Emergency Fund are appreciated.

A video link is emailed to all registrants the week of September 14. Find more information and registration on www.saintmarys.edu/evening-tara-westover.
