Skamania County Reads 2019

"Danger Close" by Amber SmithJoin us for the seventh annual community-wide Skamania County Reads! This year's featured title is Danger Close by Amber Smith, a White Salmon native. 

This is a story of learning how to survive in an elite “boy’s club” of Army aviation. Amber Smith is one of only a few women to fly the Kiowa Warrior helicopter and was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan where she performed under extreme pressure in some of the most dangerous combat zones in the world. Smith joined the military before the opening of combat arms positions to women and her story makes a case for gender integration in the military.

Events kick-off Tuesday, April 16, 2019 with a discussion of the book and continue with speakers in April and May.
