Jeannette Walls - Half Broke Horses

Highlands Ranch: Journalist Jeannette Walls, author of the critically acclaimed memoir The Glass Castle, will read from and sign her new novel Half Broke Horses: A True-Life Novel ($25.00 Scribner), the story of her grandmother, told in a first-person voice that is authentic, irresistible, and triumphant. Lily Casey Smith, Jeannette Walls’s no nonsense, resourceful, and spectacularly compelling grandmother, lived a life of adventure, toil, heartbreak and triumph. Half Broke Horses is Laura Ingalls Wilder for adults, as riveting and dramatic as Isak Dinesen’s Out of Africa or Beryl Markham’s West with the Night. Free numbered tickets for a place in the booksigning line will be available at 6:30 pm; one ticket per customer in line. Seating for the presentation prior to the signing is limited, and available on a first-come, first-served basis to ticketed customers only.
