International Women’s Air & Space Museum Presents Author Jessica Cox

The International Women’s Air & Space Museum (IWASM) will be hosting a book and poster signing with author Jessica Cox on Sunday, April 3, 2016 from 4:00-5:30 p.m. at the museum before the showing of the award-winning feature documentary, “Right Footed,” at the Cleveland International Film Festival (CIFF).

Cox was born without arms but didn’t let that stop her from overcoming many obstacles in life. She exceeded her limits to become the first woman to fly a plane with her feet, earn a Taekwondo State Championship title, travel the world as a motivational speaker and advocate for people with disabilities.

IWASM was chosen as a 2016 community partner for the film along with Achievement Centers for Children and Youth Challenge. Both organizations will be present at the signing. CIFF will be holding two screenings of the film, one on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at 3:35 p.m. and on Sunday, April 3, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased on the CIFF website. Use discount code “IWASM” for two dollars off ticket prices of any film.

The museum offers free admission. Exhibit hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. Office, gift shop and research center hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The International Women’s Air & Space Museum is located in the terminal of Burke Lakefront Airport, only seconds from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the Great Lakes Science Center. The mission of IWASM is to preserve the history of women in aviation and space and to document their continuing contributions today and in the future. In 1986 the museum opened in Centerville, Ohio. IWASM was welcomed to the City of Cleveland, Ohio in 1998, where you will find their home at Burke Lakefront Airport. Exhibits are in the lobby at Burke, as well as the west concourse, and are accessible seven days a week. For additional information please visit www.iwasm.org.
