High Tea by Gerri
Literary dramatist Leslie Goddard in character as Amelia Earhart
American aviator Amelia Earhart’s courageous exploits and spirited personality made her an international celebrity. Her dazzling achievements include becoming the first woman to cross the Atlantic ocean by airplane (1928) and the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic (1932). She set numerous speed and altitude records before disappearing mysteriously in 1937 during an attempted around-the-world flight.
Leslie Goddard’s presentation reviews Amelia Earhart’s upbringing, the records she broke, and her tireless work to promote opportunities for women.
