Former Washington Star writer (for 10 years) Winston Groom will be in DC promoting his upcoming book, THE AVIATORS: Eddie Rickenbacker, Jimmy Doolittle, Charles Lindbergh, and the Epic Age of Flight November 8th. His event is with Hooks Books Events and CQ Roll Call. He will also be back in February for an event at the Smithsonian.
The Aviators tells the saga of three extraordinary aviators--Charles Lindbergh, Eddie Rickenbacker, and Jimmy Doolittle--and how they redefine heroism through their genius, daring, and uncommon courage.
