Meet Joanne Guilfoil, author of Flying Over Delmarva, on July 19th from 6:30-8:30pm.
Flying Over Delmarva
This is a coffee table book filled with gorgeous color photos of many types of aircraft from all over Delmarva. It is also a rich historical account of military, agricultural and recreational airplanes, with stories provided by friends, families and pilots who flew them, including: a Mitchell B-25, Navy trainers, a Talon T-38, Stearman, Beechcraft, King Air, Cessna, Erco Ercoupe, Waco, 1929 Great Lakes and many banner planes!
"Joanne K. Guilfoil was a non-reader/reluctant-reader throughour elementary school. For six years, she turned in the same book report re-copied from the book cover, becahse she could not read very well. No one knew, no one asked, and she did not tell anyone. Finally, the 6th-grade teacher sent her home iwth a book and a note to her parents. Thanks to him, she slowly began to read.
The ABCs of Flying Over Delmarva is her first ABC book and hopefully not her last. She has dedicated it to her grown children who became great readers and to her toung grandchildren who already love story books. It is also dedicated to all the featured Delmarva pilots and aviation personnel who made everthing possible. Without their stories and photos, even this little book would not exist."
