As of yesterday I have been at the 99s International Conference Trade Show selling the Queen of the Hurricanes: The Fearless Elsie MacGill, and selling Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail's two aviation books: Polar Winds: A Century of Flying the North and For the Love of Flying.
For more information on Danielle see: http://www.daniellemc.com/
It has been two full days of connecting with talented women in aviation from every possible field and from all around the world! I feel honoured and privileged to listen to their stories and experiences.
Moreover, for many of the participants, attending a conference does not mean determining the quickest route overland on a highway or trying to determine the best flight deal, they just figure out their flight plan and fly directly to wherever it is they have to go!
The Trade Show includes a wide range of vendors, and I have been happily sharing the author's corner with Elizabeth Muir, author of of Canadian Women in the Sky: 100 Years of Flight and Air Crazy: Fascinating Stories of Canadian Women in the Air (which was recently released in French Libres comme l'air: Histoires fascinantes des pionnières de l'aviation canadienne)
For more information about Elizabeth, see her website at:
Tomorrow will be the last day of the Trade Show - it is taking place in the Penthouse of the Delta City Ottawa from 12pm to 5pm - if you have time, you should really do a fly-by! Hope to see you there!
