Food for Thought Book Group

Thursday, June 7

6:30 p.m., Session Room

Learn about Anne Morrow Lindbergh (Born June 22, 1906)

The Aviator's Wife F by Melanie Benjamin

When Anne Morrow travels to Mexico City to spend Christmas with her family, she meets Colonel Charles Lindbergh, fresh off his 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic. Enthralled by Charles’s fame, Anne is certain the aviator has scarcely noticed her. Charles sees in Anne a kindred spirit and a fellow adventurer. The two marry and in the years that follow, Anne becomes the first licensed female glider pilot in the US. Despite her major achievements, she is viewed merely as the aviator’s wife.
