The Santa Barbara Museum of Art will highlight local author Ellen O’Connell Whittet and her book “What You Become in Flight” in a Zoom presentation at 5 p.m. March 16.
In her first book, a coming-of-age memoir, she combines the experience of learning to jump with universal ideas of self worth, insecurity and individuality.
She is a lecturer in the UCSB writing program and has written for numerous publications.
The museum has copies available to purchase in-person and online at sbmastore.net.
Tickets are free and available at tickets.sbma.net.
