Author Talk with Craig Harwood

March 19, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Craig Harwood’s “Quest for Flight” is a biography of a prolific scientific inventor and the principal aviation pioneer in the American west at the turn of the nineteenth century. At a time when many grappled with the seemingly impossible “problem of aerial navigation”, John J. Montgomery independently solved the problem of human controlled flight and served as unofficial dean to a community of California based aviation pioneers at that critical tipping point in the race to conquer the skies. Santa Cruz County served as an important locale for a pivotal point in the story and represents a Kitty Hawk of the west. This program is sponsored by Friends of the Scott’s Valley Library, a chapter of FSCPL.

Join us for this wonderful opportunity to meet Craig and hear more about this fascinating period in American History, a great event for all members of the family!
