This year commemorates the 20th anniversary of the publication of The Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter, the remarkable true story of Ida Lewis, America’s most famous female lighthouse keeper. Ida served as keeper at Lime Rock Light Station in Newport, Rhode Island, in the late 1800s to 1911. She became an international celebrity literally overnight because of her steely courage and strength, saving as many as 30 lives during the course of her career.
Author Lenore Skomal wrote the definitive biography about the life of Ida Lewis. Nico Raineau, writer and director, optioned the rights to the book for a movie, and together, their goal is to bring this remarkable heroine back into the national consciousness.
