Waiting for Circling the Sun by Paula McLain?

Collage-female aviatorsPaula McLain’s newest book, Circling the Sun, a fictionalized account of the life of female aviator Beryl Markham, is a hot title right now. If you’re on hold for this book, and would like some suggestions for what to read while you’re waiting, we have some ideas:

Fiction titles:
City of Jasmine by Deanna Raybourn
Becoming Clementine by Jennifer Niven
The Four Corners of the Sky by Michael Malone
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (YA title with appeal for adults)
Blue Skies by Adrienne Byrd
Leaving Earth by Helen Humphreys

Nonfiction titles:
West With the Night by Beryl Markham
High-flying women : a world history of female pilots by Alain Pelletier
Daughter of the air : the brief soaring life of Cornelia Fort by Rob Simbeck
We were WASPS by Winifred Wood

You may find all of these (and more) in our catalog—or ask any of our friendly staff!
