Franklin, NH

Rachel Stolworthy [Fall 2005]
Children's Librarian, Franklin Public Library

I read The Glass Castle: a Memoir by Jeannette Walls this summer. Walls is a writer and reporter for MSNBC.com, and she has written the story of her life and the lives of her parents and siblings. I LOVED this book! Jeannette's family lived an eccentric, nomadic existence during her childhood years, mainly in the American southwest. Her parents were unconventional, with a very relaxed view of parenting (to put it mildly~ today we would call this neglect) but, she loves them for who they are.
