FRIDAY FREE DAY!! Yesterday author Marie Marquardt dropped by the Flatiron Building to sign galleys of her first YA novel, DREAM THINGS TRUE, for FIVE lucky librarians!
A BEA YA buzz panel selection, DREAM THINGS TRUE is a modern-day Romeo and Juliet story in which a wealthy Southern boy falls in love with an undocumented Mexican girl and together they face perils in their hostile Georgia town. What follows is a beautiful, nuanced, well-paced exploration of the complications of immigration, young love, defying one’s family, and facing a tangled bureaucracy that threatens to completely upend two young lives.
To enter the giveaway, simply email Library@MacmillanUSA.com from your professional/library-issued e-mail address (subject: Dream Things True) by Sunday, May 10. Make sure to include your library’s mailing address to be placed in the random drawing. Check out the fine print after the break.
