Kepler's Books, Tuesday, June 16 at 7:30pm
Credit: William B. McCullough PREMIER EVENT: David McCullough Tuesday, June 16, 7:30pm The Wright Brothers Fox Theatre, 2215 Broadway Street, Redwood City Tickets are available at Kepler's and online at Fox Theatre Box Office Join us for a very special evening with two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian, David McCullough. He is the author of numerous acclaimed books, including 1776, Brave Companions, The Johnstown Flood, The Great Bridge, and The Greater Journey. We're so thrilled to celebrate McCullough's new book, The Wright Brothers, in which we'll learn the story-behind-the-story of Wilbur and Orville Wright, the brothers who inspired and taught the world to fly. We know all about their achievements and the history of flight, but who were the Wilbur brothers really? McCullough, drawing on the immense collection of the Wright Papers - including private diaries, notebooks, scrapbooks, and more than a thousand letters from private family correspondence - shows us that Wilbur was unquestionably a genius, and Orville had rare mechanical ingenuity. Both brothers had an average public school education, very little money, and no contacts in high places to help them with their "mission" to take to the air. These two unknown men of exceptional courage and determination, of far-ranging intellectual interests and ceaseless curiosity, much of which they attributed to their upbringing - a house full of books if without electricity and indoor plumbing - changed history in 1903 in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This thrilling book tells the human side of The Wright Brothers' story, including the little-known contributions of their sister, Katharine, without whom things might have gone very differently for them. David McCullough has twice received the Pulitzer Prize, for Truman and John Adams, and twice received the National Book Award, for The Path Between the Seas and Mornings On Horseback. He is the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award.
