Trippe Gallery to host Pan Am book signing on Saturday
The Trippe Gallery in Easton will host a book signing from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, for “Pan Am: Personal Tributes to a Global Aviation Pioneer” by Jeff Kriendler and James Baldwin. In 1927, Pan American Airways was launched with a contract to fly the U.S. mail from Key West to Havana, Cuba. During 2017, friends and supporters of Pan Am commemorated this landmark event with the publication of a special 90th anniversary volume that looks back at the history of the airline that helped mold the international commercial airline industry of today. This commemorative book contains more than 80 stories written by former Pan Am employees and international media friends who had personal experience with many of Pan Am’s key events during its history. The anthology recounts the history of Pan Am from its first flight to its last.
