Fly in for Story Time featuring "Wind Flyers"

"FLY IN FOR STORY TIME" LANDS AT
 LONE STAR FLIGHT MUSEUM 


“Wind Flyers” by Angela Johnson is our next book to take off!

 

We are excited to announce "Fly In for Story Time" featuring an aviation-themed book the first Wednesday and Saturday of every month. Located in the Museum’s Flight Academy Gallery, the reading will be followed by an interactive activity. 

 

The series continues with “Wind Flyers” by Angela Johnson and illustrated by Loren Long.  Three-time Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Angela Johnson and New York Times bestselling illustrator Loren Long invite readers to ponder a band of undercelebrated World War II heroes -- the Tuskegee Airmen. With fleeting prose and transcendent imagery, this book by the masterful author/artist duo reveals how a boy's love of flight takes him on a journey from the dusty dirt roads of Alabama to the war-torn skies of Europe and into the hearts of those who are only now beginning to understand the part these brave souls played in the history of America.
