Michael Smith at the Library

Michael Smith will be speaking at Barry O'Keefe Library in October about his book, Voyage of the Southern Sun: An Amazing Solo Journey Around the World.

With limited flying experience, no support team and only basic instruments in his tiny single engine flying boat, the Southren Sun, Smith risked his life to make modern aviation history. His adventures include an unexpected greeting by Special Branch on his arrival in the UK, a near death experience while leaving Greenland, and a journey up the Mississippi, landing on the river and sleeping on sandbanks at night. He made eighty stops on his flight around the globe, exploring cities and communities, as well as visiting some seventy cinemas.
