Description

How could two brothers who never left home, were high-school dropouts, and made a living as bicycle mechanics have figured out the secret of manned flight? Join us in welcoming historian and author William Hazelgrove as he presents his new history of the Wright Brothers’ monumental accomplishment – focusing on their early years of trial and error at Kitty Hawk.  Combing through original archives and family letters, Hazelgrove’s richly researched and well-told tale of the Wright Brothers’ landmark achievement captures the excitement of the times at the start of the “American century.”  Copies of the book will be available for purchase and to be signed by the author.
