Please join us for our Annual Membership Brunch. This event is a great opportunity to greet old friends, meet new members, sign up for one of our new interest groups, and don’t forget our great book sale. Most importantly, hear an exceptional presentation about women in the Military from this year’s guest speaker Anne A. Wilson.
Presentation: Anne A. Wilson: Women in the Military
We are honored to have Anne A. Wilson, author, and former Navy helicopter pilot, as this year’s guest speaker.
Anne graduated from the United States Naval Academy and served nine years active duty as a Navy helicopter pilot, which included deployment to the Persian Gulf. The Naval Helicopter Association named Anne and her crew “Helicopter Aircrew of the Year”, an award given for search and rescue.
Anne will give us a glimpse into what it is like to be a woman in the Military, especially while serving in a role typically thought to be a ‘man’s job’. This is a very timely topic in light of recent announcements by Defense Secretary Aston Carter to open all previously closed combat and special operations jobs to women.
Anne’s debut novel, Hover, was released in 2015 to critical acclaim in the literary community. The story portrays a female helicopter pilot who faces challenges in her career as she struggles to excel, both personally and professionally, in a male dominated environment. Anne is also the author of Clear to Lift, which released this July.
