Julia and I discuss her new book Come Fly the World, how she discovered and decided to tell these women’s stories, approaching the issue of memory and recall with her interviews, the importance of stewardesses’ contributions to both the feminist movement and to present-day women and their ability to travel freely, and much more.
Come Fly the World can be purchased at Murder by the Book.
