Heather Lang presents "Fearless Flyer: Ruth Law and Her Flying Machine"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, March 13 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, March 13 at 3pm, when local author Heather Lang returns to the Bookshop with her new picture book biography, "Fearless Flyer: Ruth Law and Her Flying Machine."

On November 19, 1916, at 8:25 a.m., Ruth Law took off on a flight that aviation experts thought was doomed. She set off to fly nonstop from Chicago to New York City. Sitting at the controls of her small bi-plane, exposed to the elements, Law battled fierce winds and numbing cold. When her engine ran out of fuel, she glided for two miles and landed at Hornell, New York. Even though she fell short of her goal, she had broken the existing cross-country distance record. And with her plane refueled, she got back in the air and headed for New York City where crowds waited to greet her.

In this well-researched, action-packed picture book, Heather Lang and Raul Colon recreate a thrilling moment in aviation history. Includes an afterword with archival photographs.

Heather Lang is also the author of two other biographies for young readers - "Queen of the Track: Alice Coachman, Olympic High-Jump Champion" and "The Original Cowgirl: The Wild Adventures of Lucille Mulhall." She lives in Massachusetts, with her husband and four children.

"Fearless Flyer" is illustrated by the acclaimed artist Raúl Colon. (TooFondOfBooks)
