  • CarolAnn Garratt is the author of Upon Silver Wings II  World-Record Adventure  which documents an amazing flight that Garratt took with Carol Foy to break a world record and raise money for ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).  The pair circumnavigated the globe in seven days in a Mooney. 
  • Bernice Haydu is the author and subject of WASP Letters Home 1944-1945. During training and active duty, she wrote home on a regular basis giving detailed descriptions of her life in the Air Force.  She continued describing the many other flying experiences she had as a civilian pilot.
  • Jonna Doolittle Hoppes is the granddaughter of General Jimmy Doolittle.  Her book Just Doing My Job was published in May 2009 and preserves the personal histories of ordinary citizens who left jobs and families behind to contribute to the war effort.  Previously Hoppes authored a biography of her grandfather called Calculated Risk: The Extraordinary Life of Jimmy Doolittle.
  • Sue Hughes is a pilot and flight instructor who launched a series of children's books about flying including Claire Bear Presents the Pilot Alphabet and Claire Bear's First Solo.

WAI President Dr. Peggy Chabrian commented, "Our attendees have a great opportunity to meet the authors and have one-on-one conversations with them.  And the authors often comment that they enjoy the interaction with their readers at our Conference.
