Reeve Lindbergh will be appearing at Village Square Booksellers to read from and discuss her new book, Two Lives on Friday May 18 at 6pm as part of BF3F. Reeve Lindbergh, daughter of aviator-authors Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, writes about the intersection of fame and privacy from her unique perspective—as the spokesperson for the arguably most famous family of the twentieth 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.
