2. Educated: A Memoir
By: Tara Westover
Publisher: Random House
February 20, 2018

Features:
  • #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER An unforgettable memoir about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University Book Club Pick for Now Read This, from PBS NewsHour and The New York Times "A coming-of-age memoir reminiscent of The Glass Castle."-O: The Oprah Magazine "Tara Westover is living proof that some people are flat-out, boots-always-laced-up indomitable."-USA Today
  • "The extremity of Westover's upbringing emerges gradually through her telling, which only makes the telling more alluring and harrowing."-The New York Times Book Review
  • Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her "head-for-the-hills" bag. In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged metal in her father's junkyard.
  • Her father distrusted the medical establishment, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. Gashes and concussions, even burns from explosions, were all treated at home with herbalism. The family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when an older brother became violent.

5. Leadership: In Turbulent Times
By: Doris Kearns Goodwin
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
September 18, 2018

Features:
  • "After five decades of magisterial output, Doris Kearns Goodwin leads the league of presidential historians. Insight is her imprint."-USA TODAY "A book like Leadership should help us raise our expectations of our national leaders, our country and ourselves."-The Washington Post
  • "We can only hope that a few of Goodwin's many readers will find in her subjects' examples a margin of inspiration and a resolve to steer the country to a better place."-The New York Times Book Review In this culmination of five decades of acclaimed studies in presidential history, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin offers an illuminating exploration of the early development, growth, and exercise of leadership.
  • Are leaders born or made? Where does ambition come from? How does adversity affect the growth of leadership? Does the leader make the times or do the times make the leader?
  • In Leadership, Goodwin draws upon the four presidents she has studied most closely-Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson (in civil rights)-to show how they recognized leadership qualities within themselves and were recognized as leaders by others. By looking back to their first entries into public life, we encounter them at a time when their paths were filled with confusion, fear, and hope.
