Adult Book Discussion: Skunk Works: A Personal Memoir of My Time at Lockheed (Tue. 21 Mar, 2017 7:00 pm)

“Skunk Works: A Personal Memoir of My Years at Lockheed” by Ben Rich and Leo Janos will be featured at the next Adult Book Discussion on Tuesday, March 21, 7:00 p.m. at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street, Mount Vernon.

From the development of the U-2 to the Stealth fighter, the never-before-told story behind America's high-stakes quest to dominate the skies, “Skunk Works” is the true story of America's most secret and successful aerospace operation.

As recounted by Rich, the operation's brilliant boss for nearly two decades, the chronicle of Lockheed's legendary “Skunk Works” is a drama of cold war confrontations and Gulf War air combat, of extraordinary feats of engineering and human achievement against fantastic odds. Here are up-close portraits of the maverick band of scientists and engineers who made the “Skunk Works” so renowned.

Filled with telling personal anecdotes and high adventure, with narratives from the CIA and from Air Force pilots who flew the many classified, risky missions, this book is a riveting portrait of the most spectacular aviation triumphs of the twentieth century.

Discussion moderator Roy Glaser will share personal insight into the program and the advances made in our country’s modern aviation and military engineering.

Limited copies of the book or ebook will be available at any library location while supplies last or can be purchased at any area bookstore. The program is free and open to the public.

Refreshments will be served. Participants will be eligible for a door prize donated by the Friends of the Library.
