Meeting fans of the book.
For example, here’s Jon:
He drove from Orlando to Tampa Bay to come to the show.
Here’s the sketch I did for him:
And here is Jon’s wall:
He had scanned the cover of ‘Flight’, printed it out in large banner-type strips
and wall-papered a 4 foot by 7 foot section of a room in his house.
I mean… how frickin’ cool is that?

Since it’s being held during the first weekend of
