One Book Villanova Selects "Educated"

The One Book Committee is pleased to announce the One Book selection, Educated, by Tara Westover. Born to survivalists in the Idaho mountains, Westover’s memoir is her account of an unconventional childhood and pursuit of higher education after first stepping into a classroom at age 17.

The previously scheduled One Book Lecture taking place during the Fall 2020 semester has been rescheduled. Westover will now speak to the University community on September 9, 2021.
