Between July 1927 and October 1927 Lindbergh flew to 48 states and 82 cities on his Goodwill Tour with the Guggenheim Fund for the Advancement of Aeronautics. During the tour he traveled 22,350 miles, delivered 147 speeches, and rode 1,290 miles in parades. An estimated 30 million Americans went out to see him in person on the tour--that was a quarter of the population!

I don't want to give away too much...but I can say the story involves a beauty pageant, a love triangle, a secret past, a mobster or two, and the heart and soul of a small town bursting at the seams with pride.
Your Turn: If you're a writer, can you give us a little teaser for the story you're working on? If you're a reader, what story are you currently reading, or what story is at the top of your to be read pile?
Happy (early) 4th of July! We'll be at the lake celebrating with friends and family. I'm looking forward to sharing some fun posts in July! Stay tuned...
