From the desert Southwest to West Virginia, her account of an impoverished life is a powerful and moving first-person testament to what it means to be poor. Her lecture is entitled "The Glass Castle: Hunting Demons and Other Life Lessons."

Partial funding for the Humanities Lecture Series is provided by The National Endowment for the Humanities 2000 Challenge Grant.
