Thank you to everyone who entered the drawing for an autographed copy of DECLARATION OF INTERDEPENDENCE Poems for an Election Year, a collection of poems by Janet Wong.
You can find all the books that Janet Wong has published at her website by clicking on her name.
There were a lot of entries, and I got to read lots of good poems.
I put each of your names on a yellow slip of paper and they all went into the hat.
I figured my magic top hat was the perfect thing to use.
So all the entries went into a hat.
I had my husband close his eyes and draw out four of the entries.
If you didn't win, you can still ask your library to order the book, or order the book yourself either from your local independent book store, or from Amazon, where electronic versions of the book are also available in a Kindle edition for only $3.99. (clicking on Amazon should take you right to the order page for details)
The four slips that my husband drew were...
(Now if I were really clever I'd know how to get a drum roll here.)
- Mrs. Harvey's class--you always seem to be winning, dear.
- Maureen Wartski
- Heidi Mordhorst
- Cory Corrado
I have addresses for everyone except Mrs. Harvey's class. If you could email me the address where you'd like your autographed copy of the book sent, I'll get them in the mail on Monday.
Congratulations again. I think we're all winners. Thank you for a fun week.
