The Northern State University Common Read Committee chose
"The Glass Castle,"Jeannette Walls which has spent more than 4 years on the New York Times bestseller list, as the common read for the 2013-2014 academic year.
 
Critics have called Jeannette Walls’ memoir, The Glass Castle, “spectacular,” “extraordinary,” “incredible,” and “riveting.” The book has sold 3.5 million copies in the US alone, been translated into 22 languages, and is being made into a movie by Paramount. It was named one of the “Top 10 Books of the Decade” by Amazon, and has won numerous awards including the Christopher Award, the American Library Association’s Alex Award, and the Books for Better Living Award.
 
In 2012, Lionsgate purchased the rights to The Glass Castle and will be releasing the movie, starring Jennifer Lawrence from "The Hunger Games" and "Silver Linings Playbook."
