Jessica Paiia as: Amelia Earhart: First Lady of the Arts
September 23 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm$15
Historic re-enactor, Jessa Piaia, will present a one-person interpretation of pioneer aviatrix Amelia Earhart entitled “Meet Amelia Earhart (1897-1937): First Lady of the Air”. The program is set in 1936, when Earhart was a popular speaker on the national circuit and preparing for take-off for the around-the-world flight in 1937. Inspired at an early age by the suffragist movement, Earhart identified with the generation of “the new woman” who had won the right to vote in 1920. Acclaimed as the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic in 1932, she was previously part of the 1928 “Friendship” flight departing from East Boston Harbor on its historic trans-Atlantic flight.
