One Book Bradford
The Aviator's Wife

One Book Bradford has chosen Melanie Benjamin's "The Aviator's Wife" as its "community read" for this season.

This work of historical fiction gives reader's look into the lives the Charles Lindbergh and his wife Anne Morrow Lindbergh, through Benjamin's eyes. Often overshadowed by her husband, Anne was accomplished in her own right -- a successful author and the first licensed female glider pilot in the United States.

As always, One Book Bradford has lined up events to complement the book. The first is an "Aviator's Lunch" on October 5 at The Runway Bar & Grill at Bradford Regional Airport. Airport Manager Tom Frungillo will give a presentation on the history of the airport. A limited number of tickets will be available at the Bradford Area Public Library. Bruce Klein will be on hand to give people rides in his biplane (for a fee) at the peak of fall foliage season.

The One Book Bradford season will culminate with a visit from the author in May.
