This coming Monday, April 23rd, is World Book Night, a transatlantic celebration of reading and books! On that night, all across the U.S, the U.K, Ireland, and much of Europe, folks will be passing along a favorite book to someone. Tens of thousands of people in local communities have signed up to be "book givers," reading ambassadors who'll pass along 20 copies of a book they've enjoyed to members of their community, particularly those who may be infrequent readers or don't have easy access to books. Don't you just love that idea: being a reading ambassador!
To celebrate World Book Night, I plan on blogging every day between now and then about a book I love and books that have been very important to me.
The other thing I am doing to celebrate this night of reading is a give-away! The first five people to email me between now and April 24th will receive a signed copy of either A Dog's Way Home or my first book, The Ring--your choice. In that email, I'd love a photo of you reading a favorite book or the cover of a favorite book. That's all you have to do! To email me, go to this link on my website.
I'm the author of The Dogs of Winter (Arthur A. Levine Books), A Dog's Way Home (Katherine Tegen Books) and The Ring (WestSide). I'm a long-time book lover, and a passionate dog person. I live in the high country of the Utah mountains with my husband, three dogs, and two cats. Life is sweeeet!
