Perrot invites you to an evening with author and award-winning filmmaker John Heminway as he discusses his new book, In Full Flight: A Story of Africa and Atonement. Heminway tells the remarkable story of Dr. Anne Spoerry’s search for a new life in Africa in the wake of World War II– a life that sparked a heroic career, but also hid a secret past. Heminway has produced and written more than 200 documentaries on subjects as varied as travel, brain science, evolution, and natural history. He has won two Emmys, two Peabody Awards, and a duPont-Columbia Award. Most recently, he is known for his exposes of the illicit ivory trade.
