- : Books - Apr 29 - Owls Head - Author Harry Haskell: The Wright Sister - Owls Head Transportation Museum - Upcoming Knox County Maine Events
Katharine Wright was not only the sister to her famous brothers, Orville and Wilbur, she embodied the worldly, independent, and self-fulfilled New Woman of the early twentieth century. Harry Haskell previews his new novel Maiden Flight, the true-life story of the "Wright sister," Katharine, who left her world-famous brother Orville to marry the man she loved, the author's grandfather and namesake. Drawing on intimate family letters, this engrossing book crosses the boundaries of fact and fiction to shed new light on an exceptional woman's struggle for independence and fulfillment. In allowing Katharine to step outside of Wilbur and Orville's shadow, Haskell sheds new light on the central role she played in their private lives, as well as on her often misunderstood contribution to their scientific work. Above all, Maiden Flight celebrates Katharine's abundant store of what she called "human nature," her lively and perceptive outlook on life, her great capacity for both love and indignation, and her acute and sometimes crippling self-awareness. A former acquiring editor for Yale University Press and classical music critic for the Kansas City Star, Harry Haskell is the grandson of the Star's Pulitzer Prize-winning editor, Henry J. (Harry) Haskell. He is the author of three previous books, including Boss-Busters and Sin Hounds: Kansas City and Its Star and The Early Music Revival: A History. Event is at the Owls Head Transportation Museum at 1 p.m.
