I’ve always been fascinated by the story of Anne Morrow Lindbergh. She was a gifted artist, a world-class author, and would go on to personally witness some of the most iconic moments of the 20th century. At age 23, fresh out of college, she married Charles Lindbergh, who was described at the time as “the most famous man in the world” and who later became notorious for his support of Hitler before America’s entry into World War II. I could not resist the opportunity to be a producer of a documentary about Anne’s life, and help bring her story and her poetry to others. The film, “You’ll Have the Sky: The Life and Work of Anne Morrow Lindbergh” features Tony Award-winner Judith Light, who narrates the film, and Lily Rabe, an award-winning actress, who gives voice to some of Anne’s most personal writings.
The documentary will have its broadcast premiere Thursday, September 29th, at 9 pm on WHYY-TV. I’m so pleased with how this all came together and couldn’t be more excited for everyone to see the finished product. A special thank you goes out to PCK Media and the Stockton University Foundation who produced the documentary together and to the filmmakers Susan Wallner and Eric Schultz.
In addition to the documentary, you can also learn more about Anne Morrow Lindbergh at the exhibit dedicated to her at the Morven Museum & Garden in Princeton, New Jersey. I hope you enjoy the both as much as I do!
