Captain Chesley Sullenberger to Appear at BookExpo America

200px-Chesley_Sullenberger_honored_crop.jpgCaptain Chesley Sullenberger will be guest of honor at this year’s BookExpo America.

The pilot who miraculously landed an airplane on the Hudson River will appear at the book festival Saturday, May 30 at 3:00 pm. Captain Sullenberger also scored a $3.2 million two-book deal with HarperCollins’ William Morrow imprint earlier this year. He will write a memoir that climaxes with his airplane landing and a book of “inspirational poems.”

Lance Fensterman, Vice President of BookExpo America, added: “Captain Sullenberger is one of those rare individuals whose character and integrity are quickly discernible by the manner in which he presents himself. He is a person who everyone wants to meet.”
