Galveston Reads Unveils Glass Castle Display

Galveston Reads installed a multimedia display for their 2009 selection, The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, in the lobby at the Rosenberg Library. The display, which was created by Galveston Reads committee member, Lynn Burke, represents a scene from the book, as interpreted by the artist. Using oil pastels, paper, and a salvaged window, Lynn depicted a moment in the story as it might have been seen through the window of one of the many desert houses occupied by the family in the book. The view is of the night sky, the time is Christmas, and the story is told in The Glass Castle. Read the book and join the discussion for the 2009 Galveston Reads book.
