Imprint Extra: Giveaway--Boxed Edition of West of Here by Jonathan Evison

To help celebrate the launch of Jonathan Evison's fantastic new novel West of Here, Algonquin Books has generously donated a beautifully packaged copy of the novel to one of my readers.

What's this book all about? As the publisher says, it's "an exposition on the effects of time, on how something said or done in one generation keeps echoing through all the years that follow, and how mistakes keep happening and people keep on trying to be strong and brave and, most important, just and right."

The story takes place in the Pacific Northwest at the end of the nineteenth century when there were still wild parts of Washington State to be explored and maybe settled. We also see the twenty-first-century results of the actions and decisions made by some of the area's earliest white citizens. Check out my Imprint Friday post for the full scoop.

Here's the giveaway (open to those with a U.S. or Canadian mailing address): One reader will receive this beautiful boxed edition of West of Here:

Your book will come in a very cool wooden box packed with some fun extras: A letter from Algonquin's executive editor, Chuck Adams; five reproductions of vintage postcards from Port Bonita and Washington State; a reproduction of an 1883 map of Washington Territory; and a copy of an 1879 map from the Department of the Interior and General Land Office.

This book package brings an already fabulous novel to life. I love every item and referred to the maps and postcards several times while reading the book. I know you'll love this boxed set too.

To enter, fill out the following form. I'll pick a winner on February 24 via random number generator, at which time I'll delete all personal data from my computer. Good luck! Thanks again to Algonquin for sponsoring this giveaway.

I can't wait to read this. The book's editor gave an enthusiastic pitch at BookExpo 2010.

I didn't sign up because even if I won, I think it would be too late for book club. I am starting to panic, as I am still on hold at the library. Hurry up!!!!
