Fly Girl: A Memoir by Ann Hood

Ann Hood, author of best-selling fiction, a couple of memoirs, and editor of knitting books, returns with this informative and nostalgic look at her years as a flight attendant in the 1970s and 80s.

Hood really wants to be a writer and she’s also looking for some excitement and she loves to travel. So after college, she embarks on a grueling job search and eventually lands a job with TWA. She describes flight attendant training; how to deliver a baby, evacuate airlines, and mix a perfect cocktail back when flying was fun.

She covers deregulation and the sexism of the times. She weathered an oil crisis, furloughs, and a labor strike. And writing the entire time.

This is a story of empowerment and self-discovery. A fun read.


This title is available in print at the Library and eaudio through Libby/Overdrive.


Carol is the Director of the Churchill County Library. She hopped a plane and is on vacation.
