Westover will speak at Wenatchee High School Auditorium on April 12 at 7pm and the Omak Performing Arts Center on April 13 at 7pm.
Her critically acclaimed memoir, Educated,

education to earning a PhD from Cambridge University.
Her Friday night talk will also be live streamed at several of our branch libraries:
