Blogfest 2010 Giveaway - The Next Queen of Heaven by Gregory Maguire

Welcome to Blogfest 2010! I so thrilled to be participating in this fun event for the first time - and hosting my first giveaway at the same time.

Up for grabs is a brand new, not yet read copy of The Next Queen of Heaven by Gregory Maguire - you know, the Wicked guy. This book is scheduled to be released on October 5, 2010. I got an early copy with a special cover as part of Concord Free Press's generosity-based publishing program. Here's the catch: the company asks that each recipient of the book make a donation to a charity (any amount) and then pass it along. (There's a letter in the book that explains it all.) To honor the program's spirit, I will make a $10 donation to the literacy nonprofit of the winner's choice.

About the book:

From the HarperCollins Website: "With the new millennium approaching, the eccentric town of Thebes grows even stranger. Mrs. Leontina Scales begins speaking in tongues after being clocked by a Catholic statuette. Her daughter, Tabitha, and her sons scheme to save their mother or surrender her to Jesus—whatever comes first. Meanwhile, choir director Jeremy Carr, caught between lust and ambition, fumbles his way toward Y2K. The ancient Sisters of the Sorrowful Mysteries join with a gay singing group. The Radical Radiants battle the Catholics. A Christmas pageant goes horribly awry. And a child is born.

Only a modern master like Gregory Maguire could spin a tale as frantic, funny, and farcical as The Next Queen of Heaven."
