In July of 1929, Charles Lindbergh’s dream of speedy coast-to-coast travel culminated in the Transcontinental Air Transport Company’s 48-hour air and rail passenger service. Amid much fanfare, the inaugural excursion left New York with Anne’s great Aunt Grace as one of a few select passengers, along with celebrities like Amelia Earhart. Learn about his little-known but very important venture as you hear first-hand accounts from Grace’s journal and experience the exciting new era of air travel.

Anne is Vice President of the Topsfield Historical Society and publishes its new newsletter “Local Lore.” Each year her family hosts the Parson Capen House Thanksgiving Open House, where in period costume they roast a turkey on an open fire and welcome 250 visitors with hot cider and a tour of the historic property.

Anne has held major roles in Community Theater and has presented at many conferences. She holds a B.S. cum laude from Colby-Sawyer College and an M.S. from Boston University.
