Today’s Shelf Awareness, one of our favorite daily reads, gives a fantastic shout out to the Algonquin Book Club. There are only two weeks left until the first event with Julia Alvarez and Edwidge Danticat! To help kick things off, we’re giving away 20 copies of In the Time of the Butterflies to those who haven’t read it and who want to tune in to the live webcast on March 21, 7:00pm EST. All you have to do is leave a comment here or on our Facebook page to enter. We’ll notify the winners tomorrow morning. Good luck!
Be sure to check out our Algonquin Book Club site for an original essay by Alvarez about In the Time of the Butterflies, a description of the book, bios of the author and interviewer, a reading group guide, book club tips, and some culinary treats–wine and recipe pairings related to the book, including some recipes from Alvarez and recipe favorites of the historical characters in the book.
And the winners are (drum roll, please):
