Dickey Chapelle

Stagecoach Inn to host local author's talk on trailblazing war correspondent Dickey Chapelle

The Stagecoach Inn will host Conejo Valley author John Garofolo for a special talk on trailblazing war correspondent Dickey Chapelle as part of the museum's speaker series. Garofolo is the author of "Dickey Chapelle Under Fire: Photographs by the First Female American War Correspondent Killed in Action." Working at a time when few women were war correspondents, Chapelle photographed the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa during World War II and continued her career for another 20 years before dying in action during the Vietnam War.
