 Educated by Tara Westover

 

Born to survivalists in Idaho, Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that no one ensured the children received an education, and no one intervened when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara tried a new life. Her quest for knowledge took her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University.

 Lost Children Archive by Valeria Luiselli

A mother and father set out with their two children, a boy and a girl, driving from New York to Arizona in the heat of summer. On the radio, there is news about an "immigration crisis": thousands of kids trying to cross the southwestern border into the United States, but getting detained – or lost in the desert along the way. The family is led to a grand, harrowing adventure – both in the desert landscape and within the chambers of each member’s own imagination.
