Goodrich Memorial Library Presents Spirit of St. Louis
Writer Reeve Lindbergh will share the family story surrounding her father’s famous plane, The Spirit of St. Louis, in a talk at Goodrich Memorial Library in Newport on October 5 at 7:00 pm. Her talk,
“Lindbergh and the Spirit of St. Louis,” is part of the Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays lecture series and is free and open to the public.
Lindbergh will tell how the Spirit of St. Louis, the plane in which 25-year-old Charles Lindbergh made his non-stop New York-to-Paris flight, was also the vehicle that brought together her father and mother, and established a family.
Lindbergh, a daughter of aviator-authors Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, was born in 1945 and grew up in Connecticut. After graduating from Radcliffe College in 1968 she moved to Vermont. She is the author of more than two dozen books for children and adults, including Under a Wing, a memoir about growing up in the Lindbergh family; Forward From Here, Leaving Middle Age and other Unexpected Adventures; and Homer, The Library Cat. With other family members, she also edited her late mother’s diaries and letters, Against Wind and Tide. About First Wednesdays
