Christopher Schaberg and Mark Yakich are the guests this week as we discuss their recently released book Airplane Reading. Their book brings together a range of essays about air travel and features the work of Lisa Kay Adam, Sarah Allison, Jane Armstrong, Thomas Beller and many other fine writers. The book was born out of a long term internet project that’s been running since 2011 at airplanereading.org.
Harriet Baskas, travel writer for USAToday.com blurbed the book this way:
A marvelous story round-up exploring and explaining what air travel does to us—and makes us do. Buy it now, but save it to read on your next cross-country flight.
