Here are a few more pictures of people reading SILENT SKY.  It looks like Andy was reading it "on the fly" so to speak, and Jane must have thought a little airport ambience would add to the experience. It is true that there are some aviation scenes in the book, but not enough to put any non-pilots off, any more than a legal scene would put off a non-attorney or a car-racing scene would put
off a non-racer. 

I have been hanging out this week with an out-of-town friend who races dragsters and is in town to
meet with some big names who live in my town, might even be my neighbors.  When I listen to his stories, it reminds me of how many different worlds there are that co-exist right next to mine. People who win prestigious world drag races, people who are world-class waterskiers, people who own national companies, people who travel the world doing drum circles. These are the people I pass on the road (well the drag racer probably passes me . . . ) and stand behind in the grocery line. Incognito. Stealth. Secret treasure troves. We each have our story, big or small, and they all fascinate me. I am an incurable chit-chatter with total strangers I meet. Last week in the coffee shop line, I struck up a conversation with the fellow behind me. We were laughing and talking so much that the barista assumed we were together. When I said, "no, we just met," she refused to believe me. But the reality is that, whether just-met or old friends, we are all connected by our humanness. And every time I interact with someone new I am blessed with something - a bit of humor, an amusing tale, a piece of unexpected wisdom.

So get out there. Connect. You never know where it might lead.
