20 books donated to De La Salle Language Institute

As a part of World Book Night April 23, Nancy Wiltgen '75, senior development director, presented 20 free copies of “The Glass Castle” by Jeannette Walls to students at SMU’s De La Salle Language Institute. Wiltgen was just one of 25,000 volunteers who gave away half a million free books throughout 6,000 towns and cities across America on World Book Night, April 23.

Wiltgen was inspired to get involved in this program after working with an international student last year. The student told Wiltgen that she was interested in reading a good book in English that was not a textbook. “The Glass Castle” is one of Wiltgen’s favorites. For more information, go to
