Win a Copy of "America for Beginners" by Leah Franqui
About "America for Beginners"
"A Bengali widow leaves Kolkata for the first time in order to see America--the country that stole her son. She is accompanied by a Bangladeshi tour guide and, for propriety, an American woman companion. The three mismatched travelers set off, each searching and yearning for something they may or may not find on the carefully planned and detailed itinerary.
Short chapters showcase a kaleidoscope of voices to make for an absorbing and engrossing read. It has enough humor and heart to make it a great beach choice, but enough depth to make the characters linger long after the last page."
