Learn about Amelia Earhart and other famous female aviators this November at Mentor Public Library.

We want your imagination to take flight during National Novel Writing Month at Mentor Public Library.

That’s why we’re hosting three women who know how to soar this November at our Main Branch.

First, Connie Luhta—a trustee for the International Women’s Air & Space Museum in Cleveland—will talk about the history of Ohio women in flight at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 13. Luhta is a pilot herself and owns an airfield in Concord Township.

Then, award-winning author Paula McLain will visit the library at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 15. She’ll discuss writing the bestseller Circling the Sun, which tells the story of forgotten aviation pioneer Beryl Markham.

Finally, the most famous female aviator of all, Amelia Earhart, will touch down at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 28. Character actress Carol Starre-Kmiecik will portray the role of Earhart, discussing her remarkable life and mysterious disappearance.

Starre-Kmiecik has previously visited us as Dorothy Fuldheim, the first lady of television news, and Clara Barton, founder of the Red Cross.

All of these programs are free and open to everyone. However, you’re going to want to register ahead of time. You can sign up on our event calendar or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 216.
