Paula McLain - Circling the Sun

Wednesday, July 29, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Beryl Markham (1902-1986) was the first woman to fly solo east to west across the Atlantic, a feat she chronicled in West with the Night. Less familiar are the details of this adventurous woman’s personal life, and these are the stories that McLain, author of the best-selling novel of Hadley Richardson’s marriage to Hemingway, The Paris Wife, tells in her new novel. Starting with Markham’s abandonment by her mother, McLain recounts the unconventional childhood that led to her later passions, including the entanglement with Karen Blixen and Denys Finch Hatton.
