Ann Hood, author of FLY GIRL - a Readings from Oconomowaukee virtual event
Readings from Oconomowaukee presents an evening with Ann Hood, author of Fly Girl, in conversation with Daniel Goldin of Boswell and Lisa Baudoin of Books & Company.

In 1978, fresh out of college and hungry to experience the world, Ann Hood joined the ranks of glamorous and sophisticated flight attendants. In the air, Hood found both the adventure she'd dreamt of and the unexpected realities of life on the job. She carved chateaubriand in the first-class cabin and dined in front of the pyramids in Cairo, fended off passengers' advances and found romance on layovers in London and Lisbon, and walked more than a million miles in high heels. 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.

From Laura Lippman, New York Times best-selling author of Dream Girl: "At first blush, Fly Girl is a charming, layered memoir about Ann Hood's life as a flight attendant who knew the industry in its glory days - and its-not-so-glorious days post-deregulation. But it's also something much more, nothing less than a manifesto calling us to embrace joy and adventure, however we define them. I have always loved Ann's stories and now I know why she has so many: She has lived, in the best, fullest sense of that word. She can't make the sun stand still, but, boy does she make it run."

Ann Hood is the author of the best-selling novels The Book That Matters Most, The Obituary Writer, and The Knitting Circle, and the memoir Comfort: A Journey Through Grief. Her most recent books are the memoirs Fly Girl and Kitchen Yarns: Notes on Life, Love, and Food. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island, and New York City.
