Aloha Wanderwell author Christian Fink-Jensen to Speak at McNally Robinson

Mar 25

Join Christian Fink-Jensen, co-author of Aloha Wanderwell: The Border-Smashing, Record-Setting Life of the World’s Youngest Explorer, for a look at the life of one of the greatest — and most outrageous — explorers of the 1920s. In 1922, a 15-year-old girl, fed up with life in a French convent school, answered an ad for a travelling secretary. Tall, blonde, and swaggering with confidence, she might have passed for twenty. She also knew what she wanted: to become the first female to drive around the world. Her name was Aloha Wanderwell. Aloha became known around the globe. She was photographed in front of the Eiffel Tower, parked on the back of the Sphinx, firing mortars in China, and smiling at a tickertape parade in Detroit. By the age of 25, she had become a pilot, a film star, an ambassador for world peace, and the centrepiece of an unsolved murder mystery. Her story defied belief, but it was true. Every bit of it. Except for her name. The American Aloha Wanderwell was, in reality, the Winnipeg-born Idris Hall. This free event will feature rare images and video footage. Books will be available for purchase.
