Join Educational First Steps for an evening with New York Times best-selling author Tara Westover. Sponsorships are available here.
Tara Westover’s autobiography, Educated: A Memoir, sparked national conversation upon its release in 2018. Called “a heartbreaking, heartwarming, best-in-years memoir” by USA Today, Educated chronicles Westover’s educational journey after overcoming a difficult upbringing. The author will share her story, which gets to the heart of what education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one’s life through new eyes and the will to change it.
This special event will be moderated by Krys Boyd, radio host of the award-winning show, THINK, on KERA.
We invite you to support this vital organization and become a sponsor of this one of a kind experience. As a sponsor you will receive priority seating, a VIP reception with Tara Westover, signed books and recognition in all event materials. Purchase your sponsorship today.
