Discover the dark side of Charles Lindbergh–one of America’s most celebrated heroes and complicated men–in this riveting biography from the acclaimed author of The Family Romanov .
First human to cross the Atlantic via airplane; one of the first American media sensations; Nazi sympathizer and anti-Semite; loner whose baby was kidnapped and murdered; champion of Eugenics, the science of improving a human population by controlled breeding; tireless environmentalist. Charles Lindbergh was all of the above and more. Here is a rich, multi-faceted, utterly spellbinding biography about an American hero who was also a deeply flawed man. In this time where values Lindbergh held, like white Nationalism and America First, are once again on the rise, The Rise and Fall of Charles Lindbergh is essential reading for teens and history fanatics alike.
Candace Fleming awarded herself the Newbery Medal in fifth grade after scraping the gold sticker off the class copy of The Witch of Blackbird Pond and pasting it onto her first novel—a ten-page, ten-chapter mystery called Who Done It? She’s been collecting awards (her own, not Elizabeth George Speare’s) ever since.
Today, Candace is the versatile and acclaimed author of more than forty books for children and young adults, including the Los Angeles Times Book Prize honored The Family Romanov: Murder, Rebellion, and the Fall of the Russian Empire; Boston Globe/Horn Book Award-winning biography, The Lincolns; the bestselling picture book, Muncha! Muncha! Muncha!; the Sibert-Award-winning Giant Squid; and the beloved Boxes for Katje. She contributed the chapter on Katharine of Aragon to Fatal Throne. Photo credit: Michael Lionstar.
- What is on your nightstand?
Two pairs of reading glasses, a spiral notebook with a dolphin on its cover, a blue Bic pen, two Unisom tablets and a copy of Jill Lepore’s These Truths. It’s a HUGE book – fascinating, but just so much. I have to read it in little bits… kind of like the way I eat brownies.
- What author would you totally fangirl for?
Jason Reynolds… who wouldn’t?
- What makes you cringe?
Mean people, and people who don’t like dogs.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I flow, definitely.
- Is there a word you love to use?
Also, if you have any pictures of your pet you would like to share, please attach them. My readers love animals!
These are my fur babies – Oxford, a mixed breed and Oliver, an American short hair. Adorable, huh? And see how Oxford helped me open my first copy of The Rise and Fall of Charles Lindbergh? He’s as excited as I am.
