I was just informed that Kindle will put 1927 on sale for a limited time from December 20 through 27. Regular price is $2.99 and the sale price will be $.99. It’s a great bargain and if you have been thinking of getting it on Kindle a real opportunity to save a few cents. At that price this G rated book would make a great stocking stuffer.
Last week I received a phone call from an attorney whose office is about 20 miles from my home in Hendersonville, NC. He told me he was raised in Flint, Michigan, and he had inherited a postcard written to his Grandmother by Mildred Doran in 1927. He was interested in finding a museum that might have a place for it. The postcard was written just a few days before the Dole Race. The message was short: “No doubt you have learned what a High Flyer I am. Am the only woman in the race. Sure we are going to get there first. Tell the people from the church I send my love to all.” I applaud the attorney’s desire to preserve the document in a place that will treasure it. I am in the process of putting him in touch with the curators as two museums that will be happy to hear from him.
