The mys­ter­ies sur­round­ing the 1937 dis­ap­pear­ance of avi­a­tion legend Amelia Earhart of­ten over­shadow her ac­com­plish­ments as a pi­lot and au­thor. Nahra will ex­plore the life of a woman who lived as if she were in­vin­ci­ble but un­der­stood she was any­thing but.

Nahra has pub­lished ar­ti­cles in schol­arly jour­nals in his­tory and the hu­man­i­ties both in the United States and Eng­land. Co-au­thor of four vol­umes of his­tory and biog­ra­phy, she has also writ­ten the best­selling e-book Amelia. An award-win­ning poet, she has taught lit­er­a­ture and lan­guage cour­ses in French and in English lit­er­a­ture, as well as Latin clas­sics in trans­la­tion at the Univer­sity of Ver­mont and at John Cabot Univer­sity in Rome, where she holds an ap­point­ment as Vis­it­ing Pro­fes­sor of Hu­man­i­ties.
