Thursday, March 7, 6pm
Wings of Hope, 18370 Wings of Hope Blvd.
Join Wings of Hope as they kick off Soar into STEM, an exciting new regional initiative to ignite in local youth — especially girls and students of color — a passion for pursuing STEM and aviation careers.
Author Keith O'Brien joins us as keynote speaker to discuss the remarkable stories contained in his New York Times bestseller FLY GIRLS: How Five Daring Women Defied All Odds and Made Aviation History, with a book signing to follow.
"Mr. O'Brien, a former reporter for the Boston Globe working in the tradition of Hidden Figures and The Girls of Atomic City, has recovered a fascinating chapter not just in feminism and aviation but in 20th-century American history." — The Wall Street Journal
