Maralys Wills (author of "Higher Than Eagles") will be appearing at Crestline on September 11th, 2010 and at Torrey Pines on September 12th, 2010.

Here's the announcement to the Torrey Hawks Hang Gliding Club:

Hello Members of the Torrey Hawks,

I wanted to make a special announcement to the club that Maralys Wills will be appearing in person for book signings of "Higher than Eagles" which she co-authored with her son Chris Wills (First US Hang Gliding Champion - 1973). The book reflects some of the early history of hang gliding as seen through the eyes of this special family. I've only read the first chapter, but the writing is excellent. I felt as if I were right there in the room with the Wills family as they decided the fate of their business ... and maybe the fate of hang gliding.

Publishers Weekly writes:

"Sometimes tragic, always exuberant, this family
saga revolving around hang gliding is movingly
recounted by a sorely tried but indomitable mother."

Maralys will be appearing at Crestline's Andy Jackson Airpark on September 11th (Andy Jackson Memorial Fly In), and at the Torrey Pines Gliderport on September 12th (Torrey Hawks Second Sunday / Annual Meeting).

The Crestline event will also feature a spot landing contest and a bomb drop along with a steak and chicken barbecue (including beans, potato salad and green salad). The Torrey Hawks event will include free sandwiches, sodas, snacks, along with the club's usual flying activites.

Please come out to either event (or both!) to meet one of the treasures of our sport. As always, thanks for your support of the Torrey Hawks Hang Gliding Club.

Bob Kuczewski
President and Founder - Torrey Hawks Hang Gliding Club
