Jeannette Walls is author of the memoir, The Glass Castle, which has been on the New York Times best-sellers list for over three years. The book details Walls’ life growing up in extreme poverty and describes the unimaginable obstacles she faced. From the desert of
the Southwest to her parent’s later homelessness in New York City, Walls’ account of an impoverished life is a compelling testament to what it means to be poor. Jeannette Walls is also a journalist whose work has appeared in New York Magazine, Esquire, USA Today, and MSNBC.
