Discussing "Half Broke Horses" by Jeannette Walls
Please join us on June 28, 2021 to discuss "HALF BROKE HORSES" BY Jeannette Walls

So begins the story of Lily Casey Smith, Jeannette Wall's no-nonsense, resourceful and spectacularly compelling grandmother. By age six, Lily was helping her father break horses. At fifteen, she left home to teach in a frontier town-riding five hundred ;miles on her pony, alone, to get to her job. She learned to drive a car and fly a plane. And, with her husband, Jim, she ran a vast ranch in Arizona. She raised two children, one of whom is Jeannette's memorable mother, Rosemary Smith Walls, unforgettable portrayed in The Glass Castle.
