Author Harry Haskell with Maiden Flight (Nov. 5)
Author Harry Haskell will be at The Learned Owl Book Shop on Saturday, November 5th. He will be signing his new novel, Maiden Flight, a fictionalized telling of the love affair of Henry J. Haskell, Harry's father, and Katharine Wright, sister of Orville and Wilbur. The novel is based on personal letters, newspaper reports and other documents of the period, including Katharine's love letters to Henry.
This is a moving read for anyone interested in the Wrights or in independent women of a bygone era. It celebrates Katharine's abundant store of what she called "human nature" - her spirited and perceptive outlook on life, her great capacity for both love and indignation, and her acute and sometimes crippling self-awareness.
Mr. Haskell is the former editor of the Kansas City Star (as was his father) and the Yale University Press, and the author of Early Music Revival: A History and editor of Attentive Listener: Three Centuries of Music Criticism, among others. He lives in Guilford, Connecticut.

...
Harry escorted Orville to Katharine's room and announced, "Here is Orv, Katharine.
