CLOSED: DEATH, DICKINSON, AND THE DEMENTED LIFE OF FRENCHIE GARCIA
We are in the second week of Latinx Heritage Month. Yesterday, authors Sandra Cisneros and Rudolfo Anaya received the National Medal of Art and Humanities. How can you not be inspired?
This week, I'm giving away Jenny Torres Sanchez's Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia. Here's a little something about the novel:
"It is the summer after Frenchie Garcia’s senior year, and she can't come to grips with the death of Andy Cooper. Her friends don’t know that she had a secret crush on her classmate, and they especially don’t know that she was with Andy right before he committed suicide. The only person who does know is Frenchie's imaginary pal Em (a.k.a. Emily Dickinson), who she hangs out with at the cemetery down the street.
When Frenchie’s guilt and confusion come to a head, she decides there is only one way to truly figure out why Andy chose to be with her during his last hours. While exploring the emotional depth of loss and transition to adulthood, Sanchez’s sharp humor and clever observations bring forth a richly developed voice."
Sounds good, right? Well, you know the drill. You can leave a comment below with your name and/or follow me on twitter and retweet my tweet. One winner will receive one copy of Death, Dinckinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia, plus, a postcard pic of my novel, The Education of Margot Sanchez. (Damn, these titles are long!) You have until Wednesday, September 29 at 11:59pm PST. I will pick a winner via random.org. Good luck!
