Wendy Knecht discusses and signs Life, Love, & Hijacking: My Pan Am Memoir

Book Soup

8818 Sunset Blvd, Austin, CA 90069

7:00pm

Life, Love, and a Hijacking: My Pan Am Memoir is an insightful, hilarious, sometimes seat-gripping look at the adventures of an ebullient flight attendant, who flew for the world's most iconic airline, Pan Am. With the world at her fingertips, anything was possible...even the improbable. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the read as Wendy Knecht recounts the experiences of her lifetime. Travel with Wendy as she transforms from naive, frizzy-haired college student into a wined-and-dined, weight-checked woman of the world. After rigorous, eye-opening training and an aerodynamics lesson called PFM, she progresses to rich experiences around the globe. Fly along as she tells stories about a cockpit swimsuit competition, working the world's longest flight from Los Angeles to Sydney, and all the perks, discoveries, and personal growth that came along the way. It wasn't just a party, and world politics were always part of the Pan Am experience. An interview by the Secret Service details a threat on President Reagan's life, and an assignment in India leads to personal involvement in the shattering, deadly 1986 hijacking of Pan Am Flight 73. Single until age 47, Wendy's Pan Am story of her "life of freedom" is thought provoking and peppered with celebrity, adventure, tragedy, and a lot of laughter. Life, Love, and a Highjacking just might empower you to seek your own life's adventure.
