Amelia Earhart: The Thrill of It
Tuesday, November 10 at 7 PM

Published to coincide with the major motion picture, "Amelia" (starring Hilary Swank, Richard Gere and Ewan McGregor), Wels' comprehensive and illustrated biography is the first of its kind to cover all facets of the icon's life. Wels has gathered never-before-seen photographs, artifacts, letters, documents, and maps - as well as the latest information about the search for Earhart's remains in the Pacific Ocean.

"Wels...presents an irresistible biography-in-pictures rich in photographs of Earhart and a slew of intriguing documents. Wels' brisk narrative hits all the main points and captures the spirit of Earhart." — Booklist

Unlikely Allies JOEL RICHARD PAUL will discuss
Unlikely Allies: How a Merchant, a Playwright, and a Spy Saved the American Revolution
Thursday, November 12 at 7 PM

In this notable reassessment of America's earliest foreign policy, the critical roles played by Connecticut merchant Silas Deane, French playwright Caron de Beaumarchais (Barber of Seville), and the enigmatic Chevalier d'Eon in the successful outcome of the American Revolution are placed at the forefront.

Paul, professor at the University of California Hastings College of the Law, constructs an intriguing account of these three "unlikely" but extraordinary characters who successfully used espionage, betrayal and sexual deception to help secure the French alliance crucial to the success of the war.

"Paul's fast-paced, engaging narrative fills a gap in the historiography of the American Revolution, and is essential reading for students of revolutionary diplomacy as well as general devotees of the age."Library Journal
