AOM Contest: The Railway Children
Posted June 16, 2009on:
Since I’ve already hosted a giveaway for Julia Hoban’s Willow, we decided to switch things up a little this month. Instead of giving away her own book, we’re giving away a copy of a book that inspired her: The Railway Children
Julia says “One day, while hopelessly perusing the shelves of the local bookstore, the contents of which might as well have been written in New Kingdom Hieroglyphics, so incomprehensible were they to me, I came upon an old and stained copy of The Railway Children. I didn’t even bother to open it, it was in English and that was enough for me, I paid for the book and ran all the way home, terrified that this unlooked for benison would disappear as if it were written in invisible ink….” To read the rest of the guest blog she did on Booktrib, go here (I really do recommend reading it!)
To enter to win your own copy:

This contest ends June 30th.
