Texas based author Kathleen M. Rodgers’ poetry featured in New York museum

Updated Aug.3, 2015 

Three of my poems from the book Because I Fly (McGraw-Hill 2002, edited by Helmut H. Reda), are featured in a new exhibit at the Cradle of Aviation Museum, Long Island, NY. Aviators, Poets and Dreamers asks the question, "Why do we fly?" and runs from July 18th through Labor Day. The exhibit will then travel to libraries across Long Island. A huge thanks to Rod Leonhard at Cradle of Aviation Museum for selecting “A Little Boy’s Dream," "The Searcher," and "To Live to Fly" for the exhibit.

What went through the minds of the children of our servicemen after the bombs dropped on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941? At least two members of the Prescott AZ chapter of the Sons and Daughters of Pearl Harbor Survivors who attended their luncheon meeting this month remembered that date in history.  Sirens began wailing, calling the men to duty on the island of Oahu, one of them recalled, even though it was a Sunday. One can only imagine the confusion, the fear, the wait for evacuation.
