Hebo Women’s Book Club met at South Tillamook County Library for December on the 17th. Attendees included Melanie Merryman, Rachel Pettit, Madlen Silkwood, Nancy Whitehead and Joan Wilke; I was absent due to a previous committment. Nancy led a discussion of “Educated” by Tara Westover. The well written memoir was a fast and enthralling read. I recommend it.
