One book that's on most "best of the year" lists — including that of Time magazine, Bill Gates and the Obamas — is Tara Westover's memoir "Educated." Here & Now's Robin Young talks with the author, who grew up in and ultimately left behind an extreme survivalist Mormon family in Idaho. Also, last year police were less likely to successfully close rape investigations, according to FBI statistics provided to The Associated Press — putting the rape "clearance rate" at its lowest level since the 1960s. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Dec. 31, 2018 full broadcast. You can read and hear more at hereandnow.org, follow us on Twitter and join the conversation on Facebook.
