Recommended reading

“Fly Girls,” a story about how five daring women defied all odds and made aviation history by Keith O’Brien, is being recommended by patrons of the library. The book tells the stories of five remarkable women: Florence Klingensmith, a high school dropout who worked for a dry cleaner in Fargo, North Dakota; Ruth Elder, an Alabama housewife; Amelia Earhart, the most famous, but not necessarily the most skilled; Ruth Nichols, who chafed at the constraints of her blue blood family’s expectations; and Louise Thaden, the mother of two young kids who got her start selling coal in Wichita, Kansas. Together they fought for the chance to race against the men and in 1936 one of them would triumph in the toughest race of all.”
