East Amwell historian Jim Davidson will be in Hopewell on Wednesday, Sept. 13 and Wednesday, Oct. 4 with a two-part talk covering the life and times of Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh.

He will also talk about Anne Morrow’s early life and writing career as well as the couple’s courtship, marriage, move to the Sourlands and the fateful kidnapping of Charles Jr. in 1932.
In part two, Davidson will start with the search for the Lindbergh baby and the “Trial of the Century” in Flemington and go on to cover the rest of the Lindberghs’ storied lives from there.
