Safe Landing: One-Year Anniversary List of Events

Updated: May 23, 2023

May 25th, 2023, is a big "Red Letter Day" for us here at Long Overdue. Most importantly, it's the 44th anniversary of American Airlines Flight 191. And, closely connected, It's also the 1-year anniversary of Safe Landing, Melody Smith, Kim Jockl, and Jim Borchers' wonderful book about their family's inspirational journey following the crash.

Our authors have a busy few weeks ahead of them, so we wanted to create a page that was easy to access with a schedule of events in April, May, and June. Bookmark this page, we'll keep it updated with new events and ways to connect. We have an ambitious goal of reaching our 1,000th copy sold by the anniversary date, which would be another incredible milestone. Spread the word, let's share this book with more people in the Chicago area and beyond!
