Coffee & Conversation with Craig Harwood

author of the award winning book, Quest for FlightQuest for Flight

Fully 20 years before the Wright Brothers flew at Kitty Hawk, N.C., a California aviation pioneer and inventor named John J. Montgomery managed to fly heavier than air craft in 1883 marking the first such flight in the Western Hemisphere.

Join author Craig Harwood as he weaves the fascinating story of how Montgomery and a cavalcade of characters (all Californians) collectively transformed science fiction into reality, and inspired a generation of Americans to take to the skies.

Copies of this book will be available for purchase and personal inscription by the author, the great grand-nephew of John Montgomery.
