On Saturday, April 9th, local author John Fredrickson will provide a talk about his new book, "Warbird Factory," which explores the WWII history of the North American Aviation company, which later became a part of Boeing and made more aircraft from 1938 to 1944 than any other company in the United States. The 2pm presentation in the William Allen Theater will be followed by a book signing with the author. Copies of "Warbird Factory" will be available in the Museum Store.
