At the Library for November 7th, 2017

Updated 2017/11/06

 

 

Clare Mulley presents a dual biography of the only two women pilots in the Nazi regime in ‘The Women Who Flew for Hitler.’  A fascinating story since Hitler didn’t allow women in the military, and one of the pilots was not only Jewish, but married to the man who tried to assassinate Hitler during Operation Valkyrie.

 

A high school student wins the lottery making her the unwanted center of attention in Kasie West’s ‘Lucky in Love.’
