Paint therapy and a fall sports preview are among the programs offered by Iola Public Library in August.
The month kicks off with the Intrepid Reader book discussion program at 2 p.m. Thursday.
The book selection is Educated by Tara Westover. Born to Mormon fundamentalist parents living off-grid in the mountains of Idaho, the author of this memoir first set foot in a classroom at age 17. Today, with a PhD from Cambridge, she describes the grief of severed ties and her struggle for self-invention. In doing so, she gets at the heart of what education offers: the ability to see life with new eyes and the will to change it.
