Date: Thursday, May 17, 2018

Showtime: 7:00 PM

Price: $5 General Admission | $40 VIP

The Spokesman-Review’s Northwest Passages Book Club welcomes best-selling author Tara Westover to Spokane.

Westover is the author of “Educated,” a critically acclaimed memoir about growing up in a survivalist family in eastern Idaho.

She never went to school, but studied on her own to gain admission to Brigham Young University and then Cambridge and Harvard.

Thursday’s community book club event, scheduled at The Spokesman-Review building downtown, has been moved just across the street to the Bing Crosby Theater, at 901 W. Sprague Ave. The event starts at 7 p.m. The 5:45 p.m. VIP Author Reception still will be held at the newspaper, in the adjacent Terra Blanca Wine Bar.

Auntie’s Bookstore will have copies of “Educated” available to book club readers before and during the event at a 15 percent discount.
