My life was narrated for me by others. Their voices were forceful, emphatic, absolute. It had never occurred to me that my voice might be as strong as theirs.

Educated (2018) is the memoir of Tara Westover, who was born in Utah to survivalists and Mormon fundamentalists.  While she was never allowed to attend school, Tara taught herself enough to to be admitted to Brigham Young University.  Being isolated her entire life from mainstream society, her time in college taught her about important world events and created the desire in her to learn more, while she also struggled with the growing divide between her and her family.

Registration is required and will open soon.  Five free copies of the book will be able on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Please note if you claim a free book and do not attend the discussion session, you will not be allowed to claim a free book in the future.  Books will only be mailed to Delaware addresses.


Program Description

From now until September 2022, Delaware Humanities will be hosting events as part of the national A More Perfect Union initiative.  The goals of A More Perfect Union are to offer resources, promote civil discourse, and increase our understanding of our government systems and history to better participate in civic life. Be sure to return to this website, sign up for our email list, and/or follow us social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) to learn more about upcoming events.  Delaware Humanities will kick off our programming with our winter book discussions, beginning on December 8. Does A More Perfect Union sound like an initiative in which your organization would like to get involved?  We are always looking for partners and would love to hear from you!
