Evening With the Author: Ann Hood presents Fly Girl: a memoir
Wednesday, June 1, 2022
Ann Hood’s career as a best-selling author took off from a surprising runway: the jump-seat of an airplane. As a TWA flight attendant, from 1978 to 1986 Hood crisscrossed the airways from Columbus to Cairo, carving chateaubriand and scooping sundaes in the first-class cabin, performing CPR and contending with red wine spills and cantankerous celebrities, and - when the cabin lights dimmed and passengers drifted off - drafting the pages of her first book. With Fly Girl: a memoir
, Hood invites us to fasten our seatbelts and travel beside her as, through grueling flight pairings and midair romances, face-offs with the airline industry’s sexist standards, and the thrill of flying solo in foreign countries, she finds adventure, and her voice, at 35,000 feet.
This event will be held in person at the Library. To join us, please register online
Hood is the New York Times best-selling author of a dozen books, including The Obituary Writer, The Knitting Circle and the memoir Comfort: A Journey Through Grief. She lives in Providence, RI, and NYC.
This event is being offered in collaboration with Buttonwood Books & Toys. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
