Lunch & a Book April 2014

On Thursday, April 10 at noon we will be discussing:

The dog stars by Peter Heller — Hig survived the flu that killed everyone he knows. He lives in the hangar of an abandoned airport with his dog, his only neighbor a gun-toting misanthrope. In his 1956 Cessna, Hig flies the perimeter of the airfield or sneaks off to the mountains to fish and to pretend that things are the way they used to be. But when a random transmission beams through his radio, the voice ignites a hope that a better life--something like his old life--exists beyond the airport. Knowing he will not have fuel to fly home, he follows the trail of the static-broken voice on the radio.
