  • THE CODE OF THE EXTRAORDINARY MIND by Vishen Lakhiani

    This New York Times bestseller is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of an ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is shaped by conditioning and habit. And thus, most people live their lives based on limiting rules and outdated beliefs about pretty much everything including our ideas of love, work, money, parenting, sex, health, and more, which we inherit and pass on from our generation to the next.

AUTHOR DEBUTS BOOK ABOUT KATHARINE WRIGHT

MONDAY, OCTOBER 24; 7 PM

HARRY HASKELL will discuss Maiden Flight, his book celebrating Katharine Wright, sister of world renowned brothers, Wilbur and Orville Wright, and the wife of his grandfather Henry J. Haskell. It is the fictional telling of Katharine Wright and Henry J. Haskell’s love story, based on personal letters, newspapers reports, and other documents of the period – in particular, Katharine’s lively and extraordinarily revealing love letters to Henry. We are made aware of her vibrant, outgoing personality that made her indispensable to her renowned yet socially shy brothers.

At age 52, torn between duty and love, she agonized for months before deciding to leave Dayton and her brother Orville (Wilbur had already died) and move to Kansas City to marry Henry Haskell. She and Orville didn’t reconcile until three years later when she was on her deathbed. She is buried between her brothers’ graves in Woodland Cemetery in Dayton. CHICAGO REVIEW PRESS
