Best-selling author Jeannette Walls will present an inspirational message to attendees at the Vermont Realtors® (VR) Realtor® Success Rally on Thursday, October 27. Jeannette is the author of The Glass Castle, a book that has been named one of Amazon’s Top 10 Books of the Decade.
Critics have called Jeannette’s memoir The Glass Castle, “spectacular,” “extraordinary,” “incredible,” and “riveting.” It has been a New York Times best-seller for more than six years, has sold 4.5 million copies in the U.S. alone, been translated into 22 languages, and is being made into a movie by Paramount.
In The Glass Castle, Jeannette describes growing up in the desert of the American Southwest and then in a West Virginia mining town with her three siblings and the brilliant, unorthodox, irresponsible parents. Despite all her hardships, Jeannette develops the determination to leave West Virginia on her own at the age of sixteen, move to New York City, enroll in Barnard College and eventually become a well-know columnist for New York magazine and MSNBC.com and a television personality.
Jeannette has spoken at colleges, corporations, and business associations about overcoming hardship and the keys to turning adversity to your advantage.
