@ Ravenna - Strangers Have the Best Candy by Margaret Meps Schulte

In Strangers Have the Best Candy, full-time adventurer Margaret Meps Schulte casts caution to the
wind, striking up conversations with laughing, crying, boozing, and
topless strangers all over the USA and beyond. Their stories, and the
resulting hijinks and friendships, are her candy, her rewards for
breaking the rules about talking to strangers. Schulte's powerful
narrative brings unlikely real people into the light, from Betty, the
vivacious mayor of a small town in Newfoundland, to Boopsie, a
skinny-dipping breast cancer survivor. The book features over 100
pen-and-ink illustrations of chance encounters, elusive and fleeting
scenes that could never have been photographed. These humorous,
heartwarming tales will inspire readers of all ages to talk to strangers
and meet new people. Schulte shows us how to set aside fear and
judgment to look for connection and serendipity in our own lives.
