An Evening with Melanie Benjamin: Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh and Writing Historical Fiction

Author: Melanie Benjamin

Melanie Benjamin, bestselling author of Alice I Have Been and The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb, will discuss and sign her novel, The Aviator's Wife. In the spirit of books like Loving Frank and The Paris Wife, she pulls back the curtains to reveal the story behind one of America’s most extraordinary couples: Charles Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh -- aviators, thrill-seekers, heroes. She reveals their relationship’s dizzying highs and devastating lows with grace, insight, and stunning power.

Benjamin is a pseudonym for Melanie Hauser, who has written three contemporary novels. She lives in Chicago, where she is currently at work on her next historical novel.

A book signing and reception will follow the talk. For more information, call 702.507.3459.

Presented in conjunction with Delacorte Press, an imprint of Random House Publishing Group.
