Derby Public Library to host book discussion

DERBY - The Derby Public Library has scheduled its next Lunchtime Book Discussion for 12:30 p.m. March 26.

The selected title is the gripping novel The Aviator’s Wife.  Acclaimed novelist Melanie Benjamin pulls back the curtain on the marriage of one of America’s most extraordinary couples, Charles Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh.

Despite Anne’s own major accomplishments – she became the first licensed female glider pilot in the United States – Anne is viewed merely as the aviator’s wife.

The author finally takes her out from behind her husband’s shadow and lets her be the heroine in her own story.

Multiple copies of the book are available at the circulation desk.

Participants are asked to bring a sandwich and a friend as they “chat and chew.” Dessert and beverages will be provided.
Registration is requested.

For more information, stop by the Library at 313 Elizabeth St., call 203-736-1482 or visit

This is a press release from Cathy Williams, Director, Derby Public Library.
