CRANFORD—Actress and historian Monica Hoffman will perform in a one-woman show entitled “Determined Spirit: The Story of Amelia Earhart,” which reveals the life and legacy of the world’s most celebrated female aviator. The program will take place on Wednesday, April 7, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cranford Community Center, 224 Walnut Avenue.
Amelia Earhart was a woman of inspiring courage and incredible zest for life. In her lifetime she accomplished many amazing feats, including: becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean; becoming the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans; and becoming the first woman to fly solo from Los Angeles to Mexico and Mexico to Newark.
Before her mysterious disappearance somewhere over the Pacific Ocean on her ill-fated 1937 round the world flight, she had established herself as more than just a great aviator; she was a revered pioneer for women with a determined spirit to seize every opportunity life granted her.
“Determined Spirit: The Story of Amelia Earhart” is a chance to know Amelia Earhart in a true and personal way. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Cranford Public Library. Admission is free and all are welcome.
