Mason’s early morning book club and breakfast! For November we’re reading Wind, Sand and Stars by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Wind, Sand and Stars (French title: Terre des hommes) is a memoir by the French aristocrat aviator-writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, and a winner of several literary awards. It was first published in France in February 1939, and was then translated by Lewis Galantière and published in English by Reynal and Hitchcock in the United States later the same year. In his autobiographical work Saint-Exupéry, an early pioneering aviator, evokes a series of events in his life – principally the period when he was working for the airmail carrier Aéropostale.
