Anne Barrett’s great-aunt Grace was one of a few privileged passengers on an inaugural cross-country air trip from New York to Los Angeles in July 1929. This morning, from 9:30 to 10:30, at the Beverly Public Library, Barrett will present an illustrated talk to relate how, in the 1920s, flying sensation Charles Lindbergh dreamed of offering luxury air passenger service from coast to coast and places in between. Hear firsthand accounts from Grace’s diary and learn about the technological advances and events leading up to the groundbreaking enterprise, and what happened after. This program is part of the library's Monday Mornings lecture series and takes place in the Sohier Room at 32 Essex St., Beverly. Admission is free and open to adults. Light refreshments will be served at 9 a.m. The library is handicapped-accessible. For more information, email flynn@noblenet.org or call 978-921-6062.
