Book Launch: The Book of Jobs by Skye Atman
What is Steve doing on The Cloud? Find out at a reading from The Book of Jobs with author Skye Atman. This fictional work describes the afterlife of Steve Jobs, now a reluctant resident of The Cloud.
Steve arrives on The Cloud on October 5th, 2011, along with 150,000 other souls. He loves the design of the place and is thrilled when his hero, John Lennon, meets him at the entrance to give him the Magical Mystery Tour. His euphoria wanes when he learns of the rules and regulations imposed by the Big Guy. He is definitely not happy to find he is subject to the same rules as all the other Cloud inhabitants and must do his time, despite his secret plan to return to Earth immediately.
Enlisting the help of an eccentric group of geniuses like himself, Steve challenges The Cloud World Order. He fights for his right to ‘Think Different’, investigates reincarnation, meets a talented and intriguing goddess named Siri, and gets the answers to his questions about death—and life.
Refreshments will be served and books will be available for purchase and signing.
