Book for June is "Educated" by Tara Westover SUMMARY - Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home.

There are small fees to host a Meetup, but after that is covered, I'll save up the commission money and buy the first round whenever possible! : ) Interested in Kindle Unlimited - https://amzn.to/2HKrjN1 If this book is "free to Prime members", here is a link for a free 30 day trial membership - https://amzn.to/2uym8r9 Interested in an Audible Subscription - https://amzn.to/2HL8tp4
