Congratulations to Carl Scott, winner of last week's Friday Freebie: The Book of Laney by Myfanwy Collins.
In this week's book giveaway, three lucky readers will win a copy of Waveland by Simone Zelitch. Thanks to the publisher, The Head & and the Hand Press, for providing the copies of the book. Read on for more information about Waveland.
Blurbworthiness: "There has been surprisingly little fiction about the endlessly fascinating, necessary history of the civil rights movement, but Waveland is a compelling addition to that short bookshelf. In a variety of voices, Simone Zelitch has caught the complexity, the satisfactions, and the contradictions of those urgent times, and she's quite remarkably given us more than a little of the generations before and after. Brave actions have consequences and this moving novel does honor to those who bore them." (Rosellen Brown, author of Half a Heart and Civil Wars)
