Description

Spend an hour with author Reeve Lindbergh in person or on Zoom.
Readings and topics of discussion are customizable to the winner:
It could be an hour of readings and discussion about her books, whether they are children's books (21 rhyming books for early readers or elementary school age) or books for adults (7 books). The children's books are for young and beginning readers, many of the adult books are memoirs about growing up in the Lindbergh family or events from her life as an adult.
A talk can go either way. With aviation lovers, she will read and talk about her life with her parents and their lives as pioneer aviators, and with literary groups she'd touch on personal subjects, some very sad (the death of a child, an elderly parent's memory loss) some familiar and even absurd (the perils and delights of turning sixty, the exciting adventures of living with chickens—and roosters).
Reeve would be delighted to read and talk about any or all of these, as she's done in schools and libraries, museums, aviation venues (Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum a couple of times) and public or private organizations of all kinds all over the country.
This session should take place before December 1, 2022 at a mutually acceptable time. An in-person session must take place outside, during the warmer months, within a 25 mile radius of St. Johnsbury, VT.

Reeve is the author of more than two dozen books for children and adults.
