Jeannette Walls (author of The Glass Castle) had a remarkable maternal grandmother in Lily Casey Smith. By age six, Lily was helping her father break horses, and at fifteen, she left home to teach in a frontier town 500 miles away. Later she learned to drive a car and fly a plane. With her husband, Jim, she ran a vast ranch in Arizona and raised two children, one of whom is Jeannette’s memorable mother, unforgettably portrayed in The Glass Castle. Copies are available at the Circulation Desk after December 27.
