Bestselling author Tara Westover sat down with Ellen to talk about her compelling memoir, “Educated,” and how she escaped from a life with her survivalist parents by pursuing higher education.



Zach Gates says:

Did Westover’s home school curriculum include CRT?

Zach Gates says:

Did Westover’s family leave a large or small carbon footprint? Wasn’t her family’s way of life similar to the hippies’?

glamee says:

Does anybody know Shawn Westover’s real name?

Jay says:

Ok but are we going to just ignore the fact that her brother Shawn could quite possibly be a wife beating, psychopathic murderer?

Stanzin Norboo says:

Now the whole world knows about her and she must be very at peace.
I really couldn't think of that book as a memoir but a fiction drama but this is the truth ..
More power to her 👍👍👍 .

France de Guzman says:

Three years too late. After finishing her memoir last night, I’m so glad to see her looking so happy, healthy, and confident in these talk shows and interviews. 🥺🤍

I would really love for Ellen to write a book about being raised in Christian Science – autobiography anytime soon?

Being off grid and self sufficient is good, but maybe not to the extreme!!


The educated was one of my favorites I ever read. At the time of reading this book, I was imagining things happened in the book. Also, reminds me that the childhood I had been maintained 20 years ago.
