Reeve Lindbergh, Daughter of Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, To Talk About Her Memoir
June 16 @ 5:00 pm
The daughter of aviator-authors Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, is coming to Barrett Bookstore in June to speak about her new memoir, Two Lives.
Reeve Lindbergh writes about the intersection of fame and privacy from her unique perspective — as the spokesperson for what was, arguably, the most famous family of the 20th century.
In her new book, Lindbergh reflects on her own “two lives,” navigating her role as the public face of her family while, at the same time, leading a very quiet existence in rural Vermont.
After devoting years to keeping separate her “Lindbergh life” and her everyday life on her farm, she now finds herself able to make peace with her two lives.
Lindbergh takes us into the National Air and Space Museum and her own kitchen drawers with equal ease, discovering that the history-making items on display are, for her, like the memorabilia that most families keep in the attic.
Two Lives reconciles the seemingly separate worlds of fame and privacy, even finding a “certain sweetness” when they intersect.
Reeve Lindbergh was born in 1945 and grew up in Connecticut. After graduating from Radcliffe College in 1968 she moved to Vermont, where she lives on an old farm with her husband, writer Nat Tripp.
Reeve is the author of more than two dozen books for children and adults. Her work has also appeared in magazines and periodicals including the New York Times Book Review, the New Yorker, and the Washington Post.
