Thanks to Westport Library's ninth annual WestportREADS celebration, every child in town will soon be an expert when it comes to the life of pilot Amelia Earhart. One event of the month-long series, this Wednesday night, will feature feminist author Susan Ware, who will discuss Earhart's place in the history of modern American culture, as in her book Still Missing: Amerlia Earhart and the Search for Modern Feminism. Ware has taught at both NYU and Harvard, and is also the author of books about important 20th century women like tennis star Billie Jean King, New Deal influencer Molly Dewson and radio host Mary Margaret McBride.
