I have a new book. It's Cheryl Unruh's new book, "Flyover People: Life on the Ground in a Rectangular State."
The book is a collection of some of her columns written for the Emporia Gazette over the past several years. She writes about the beauty and strangeness of Kansas, and about growing up in a "flyover state." When it came out late last month, she brought me my own personal signed copy, and I humbly discovered my name in the acknowledgements too. Wow.
The lovely photo on the cover is the work of Dave Leiker, Cheryl's husband. His photo site is linked on the side here, and you should look.
They are so far available in Topeka only at the Southwind Gallery at Framewoods, which is at 3074 SW 29th St. (29th & Oakley), across from the Brookwood Shopping center. They are also at Town Crier in Emporia, The Raven in Lawrence, and many other places. Check her site, Flyover People, for more locations. You can also order them online at Flyover People, here.
I have a new book and it's good. Get you one, too.
