The presentation will feature author Erin Miller sharing stories about her grandmother, WASP World War II pilot Elaine Danforth Harmon, and discussing her book “What Grandma Did.”
According to a description of the book, “What Grandma Did” is “a story that teaches history, leadership, and courage through intergenerational learning.”
Then filmmakers Adam and Kara White will have a screening of their film “RISE ABOVE: WASP.” A panel discussion, with a question-and-answer period, will follow.
According to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, WASP pilots flew 60 million miles in a variety of military aircraft, including fighters and B-17 and B-29 bombers. “These women ferried aircraft, cargo and personnel; tested aircraft; and towed targets throughout the 48 states, filling in gaps left by male pilots who had been sent to war,” said a May 2020 Smithsonian article.
The presentation will be held in the museum’s second building.
