Aviator, Writer, Feminist featured in new documentary

This picture of Anne Morrow and Charles Lindbergh was taken in 1929 in New Mexico, where they had flown in to explore the cliff dwellings. They flew everywhere – landing in Japan, China, Stockholm, Maine, the Virgin Islands, and all along the coasts of Africa and South America. Anne was Charles’ co-pilot, as well as radio operator and navigator – she could plot their course through the skies by the stars. But she was first and foremost a writer. From a bookish family, she embraced the adventure of her life with Charles, writing about it in her letters, diaries, and best-selling books. Her style was lyrical, deeply influenced by poetry and the new, stream of consciousness modernists of the 1920s and ’30s, especially Virginia Woolf.  In September 2016, a new State of the Arts documentary about Anne Morrow Lindbergh will premiere. Until then, visit Morven Museum & Garden to see Couple of an Age: Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, featured in this State of the Arts story.
