New York Times best-selling author Melanie Benjamin visits Vernon Area Public Library, 300 Olde Half Day Road, Lincolnshire, at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24, to discuss her historical fiction novel, "The Aviator's Wife." It is the library's current selection for "One Book, One Community," which aims to bring the community together through a shared experience of literature. "The Aviator's Wife" pulls back the curtain on the marriage of one of America's most extraordinary couples: Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh. Benjamin reveals the dizzying highs and devastating lows of this famous relationship. A Chicago-area author, Benjamin will share her experience with finding her niche with historical fiction. Benjamin has written two other history-based novels, "Alice I Have Been" and "The Autobiography of Mrs. Tom Thumb." The event is free.
