Event Details

Everyone knows the myth that the Wright brothers together invented manned mechanical flight. However, author of “The Wright Brothers, Wrong Story,” William Hazelgrove, has a new narrative that counters this defining assumption: Orville and Wilbur jointly produced the Flyer. Hazelgrove will explain how after immersing himself in the Wilbur and Orville Wright Papers and examining the prototype Flyer, he discovered the Wrights’ saga is actually the story of Wilbur.
