Author Jeannette Walls to speak at Bellaire HS

Ultimate Bellaire - Best-selling author Jeannette Walls will visit Bellaire High School on Nov. 4 and read to students from her best-selling memoir The Glass Castle. Her visit gets underway at 12:30 p.m.

Nearly 500 students, many who benefit from the Writers in the Schools creative writing program, will hear the journalist tell the story about overcoming her difficult childhood.

"It's not often our students get to meet the authors they've been assigned to read," said Brian Wolf, head of the English Department at Bellaire High. "The Glass Castle is not only a story that's brilliantly written, it teaches young people they don't have to be ashamed about themselves or their pasts."

Later that evening, Walls will serve as the keynote speaker for A Celebration of Story, benefiting Writers in the Schools at the Junior League of Houston, beginning at 7 p.m.
