Fresh out of college and hungry to experience the world, Ann Hood joined their ranks. She carved chateaubriand in the first-class cabin, found romance on layovers in London and Lisbon, and walked more than a million miles in high heels, smiling as she served thousands of passengers. She flew through the start of deregulation, an oil crisis, massive furloughs, and a labor strike. As the airline industry changed around her, Hood began to write—even drafting snatches of her first novel from the jump-seat. She reveals how the job empowered her, despite its roots in sexist standards. Packed with funny, moving, and shocking stories of life as a flight attendant, Fly Girl captures the nostalgia and magic of air travel at its height, and the thrill that remains with every takeoff. ? Flying into a bookstore near you on May 3rd, 2022! Pick up a copy and learn from a master how it's done. Ann will speak about publishing her memoir, revisiting memories, and how the airline industry changed not just itself, but her, into a self-confident, uber competent woman during the 1970's and to this day, informs her writing, her book tours and herself.
