Flight Time Featuring "Fearless Flyer: Ruth Law and Her Flying Machine"

It was exactly 100 years ago when pilot Ruth Law completed her record-breaking flight from Chicago to New York. To commemorate the occasion, author Heather Lang and artist Raul Colon appear at Bank Street Book Store to present "Fearless Flyer: Ruth Law and Her Flying Machine." Join us Sunday, November 20 at 2:00 p.m. for loads of information just right for young listeners about how aviation has been shaped by courageous people like Ruth. Both detailed illustrations and archival photos help tell the story of bravery and perseverance at a time when women were not always recognized for such strong achievements. It's an inspiring moment in history -- one well worth sharing with kids AND parents.
