An author and a safari hunter give a lost woman wings as aviator Beryl Markham finds her true calling after an unusual upbringing. Abandoned by her mother and raised by both her father and the Kipsigis tribe that occupy her father’s land, Beryl succumbs to a love triangle involving Karen Blixen, the author of ‘Out of Africa,’ and safari hunter Denys Finch Hatton as she finally realizes her fate: she was born to fly. Readers of this fictional biography by Paula McLain are encouraged to also take a look at Markham’s autobiography “West with the Night”. Meet in the Armstrong Conference Room
