*POSTPONED* – ACM Virtual Book Club – The Fastest Woman on Wheels: The Life of Paula Murphy

May 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

A fearless pioneer and a versatile and gifted driver, Paula Murphy was the first woman to pilot a jet car to a Bonneville Salt Flats speed record, the first woman to make laps at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and the first woman to secure an NHRA Funny Car License. Throw in driving a Pontiac Sunbird literally around the world, nearly dying at the helm of a rocket car, and scoring closed-course speed records at NASCAR’s Talledega Superspeedway, and you might be starting to scratch the surface of her incredible life.

Join LeMay – America’s Car Museum for a lively and thoughtful conversation with author, Erik Arneson, as we dive deeper into Paula’s pioneering feats, and hear more about the remarkable woman who left an indelible legacy in the world of racing. The discussion and Q & A will take place on Zoom, May 14th at 6pm.

This book is available on Kindle and print.
