Thursday, May 17, 6:30 p.m.—RUTLAND—On Thursday, May 17 at 6:30 p.m., Phoenix Books Rutland will host Reeve Lindbergh for a discussion of her new book, “Two Lives.”
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 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.
This event is free and open to all. Phoenix Books Rutland is located at 2 Center St., Rutland. Copies of the book will be available for attendees to purchase and have signed. For more information, call 802-855-8078 or visit phoenixbooks.biz.
