Paula Helfrich Educates and Entertains

Paula Helfrich, who wore many hats during her Pan Am and Hawaii years, had the audience in the palm of her hand as she spoke of her experiences in various Pan Am departments, her later work with the State of Hawaii, her book and the current conditions in Myanmar. She bounced from one subject to another and back again in her delightful talk and it all made sense.

FLYING- a novel, Review

This terrific book will be read by different readers drawing various lessons for it is a morality tale with many meanings for multiple audiences. It is at one level a version of the consequences of the effort by the United States after the Second World War to create a world order compatible with its own values and institutions. On another level, it is a morality tale of great changes in the lives of men and especially woman as egalitarianism replaced racism and supplanted sexism on an ever smaller globe, at least for those who traveled it often. None did more so than the stewardesses of Pan Am. Written with verve and gusto, like the lives it describes were lived, it is a tale of the second half of the 20th century which witnessed a new world of travel and truly global experiences.

Robert H. Taylor, author of The State in Myanmar.
