Share Your Favorite “Out of Bounds” Story for the Chance to Win a Book
UPDATE MARCH 25: We’ve received some great suggested titles on immigration so we’re going to keep the comments section below open for more recommendations and give away a second batch of books beginning April 3.
To celebrate the authors of Arlington Reads 2013, we want to hear about your favorite books (and their authors) that capture the experience of coming to America (or another nation) and adjusting to a very new way of life.
Explain your reasons with a few insightful sentences in the comments section of this post and you could win a copy of one of the Arlington Reads 2013 featured titles: either Mengestu’s The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears or Díaz ’s The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao.
The first batch of winners will be notified by email by March 25. Those books will be available for pickup at the Reference Desk on the second floor of Central Library at 1015 North Quincy Street from March 26 through April 5.
We apologize for any inconvenience but because of logistical issues and costs, we can only distribute the books in a timely fashion this way. One book per family or group.
Arlington Reads is made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Arlington Public Library.
