I haven't been able to put down this memoir. Sarah Smarsh uses her personal history to challenge us to examine the effects of intergenerational poverty. Add it to your 2019 reading list!

Tara Westover's memoir, Educated, is phenomenal. Tara didn’t set foot in a classroom until she was seventeen. Today, she holds a PhD in history from Cambridge. Her journey is both touching and thought-provoking—and a powerful reminder to never take an education for granted.
