May
Two Lives  

Author Luncheon with Reeve Lindbergh
Wednesday, May 23, 12 pm
Moat Mountain Smoke House and Brewing Co., North Conway, NH

We are so excited to announce our May luncheon and author talk with Reeve Lindbergh, author of Two Lives, at Moat Mountain Smoke House and Brewing Co. in North Conway. Tickets are $20, which includes luncheon, author talk and donation to North Conway Library. Tickets can be purchased through the bookstore, call 603-356-3200, or North Conway Library, call 603-356-2961, by May 21.

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.

Reeve Lindbergh, 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, where she lives on an old farm near St. Johnsbury, Vermont, with her husband, writer Nat Tripp.

Reeve is the author of more than two dozen books for children and adults. Her work has also appeared in magazines and periodicals including the New York Times Book Review, the New Yorker, and the Washington Post. She is active with libraries and other non-profit organizations in Vermont and nationally.

Menu TBD so check back soon!

We are thrilled to have author, Meghan MacLean Weir join us for our upcoming luncheon. She will be discussing her debut novel, The Book of Essie at our June luncheon which will be hosted by the Sea Dog Brewing Company. The only thing you have to do is get your ticket!

A debut novel of family, fame, and religion that tells the emotionally stirring, wildly captivating story of the seventeen-year-old daughter of an evangelical preacher, star of the family's hit reality show, and the secret pregnancy that threatens to blow their entire world apart.

Esther Ann Hicks--Essie--is the youngest child on Six for Hicks, a reality television phenomenon. She's grown up in the spotlight, both idolized and despised for her family's fire-and-brimstone brand of faith. When Essie's mother, Celia, discovers that Essie is pregnant, she arranges an emergency meeting with the show's producers: Do they sneak Essie out of the country for an abortion? Do they pass the child off as Celia's? Or do they try to arrange a marriage--and a ratings-blockbuster wedding?

Meanwhile, Essie is quietly pairing herself up with Roarke Richards, a senior at her school with a secret of his own to protect. As the newly formed couple attempt to sell their fabricated love story to the media--through exclusive interviews with an infamously conservative reporter named Liberty Bell--Essie finds she has questions of her own: What was the real reason for her older sister leaving home? Who can she trust with the truth about her family? And how much is she willing to sacrifice to win her own freedom?

MEGHAN MACLEAN WEIR was raised in the rectory of her father’s church in Southbridge, Massachusetts, and later moved with her family to Buffalo, New York. Her memoir Between Expectations: Lessons from a Pediatric Residency chronicles her years in training at Boston Medical Center and Boston Children’s Hospital. She holds degrees in Molecular Biology and Medical Anthropology from Princeton and Oxford Universities, respectively, as well as an MD from the Stony Brook School of Medicine. She continues to live and work as a physician in the Boston area. THE BOOK OF ESSIE is her first novel.
