Amelia Earhart Day
My dad is from Atchison, Kansas. What do you mean you've never heard of it? Next, you're going to say you've never heard of Amelia Earhart! Oh, you know about her? Well, obviously you don't know it all. Otherwise, you would recognize Atchison as Earhart's birthplace and childhood home. Today, July 24, 2013, is Amelia Earhart Day, so it's a great day to find out even more interesting tidbits about the famous aviator. Here are just a few of my favorite books available right here, in your childhood hometown, at Hoover Public Library.
