Location: Adrian Lamb Room

Summer Read 2011 Lunch Book Discussion will be held on Monday, July 18th at noon. Cynde Bloom Lahey will lead the discussion on Amelia Earhart : The Thrill of It by Susan Wels.

She was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean and the first person to fly solo across the Pacific. But Amelia Earhart was also a photographer, poet, hospital worker, truck hauler, fashion designer, social worker, and student of chemistry, physics, and medicine—before she vanished mysteriously in her airplane over the Pacific Ocean in July 1937.

Amelia Earhart: The Thrill of It is the first illustrated biography to cover all facets of the icon’s life, featuring never-before-seen photographs, artifacts, letters, documents, and maps. It includes newly-revealed details about Amelia’s life and bring the story of her disappearance up-to-date with the latest information about the search for her remains in the Pacific Ocean. Above all, Amelia Earhart: The Thrill of It vividly captures the essence of Amelia Earhart and her unorthodox, unflinching zeal for living life.

This event is part of the program Summer Read 2011:Memoir, Biography, and Autobiography.
