Wepa! Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration Book Giveaway

Hispanic Heritage Month Books 2009

Tell me something true by Leila Cobo

Contest closed and the winners selected by Random.org are:  Andria, Shauna, Glenn, Cheryl and Ice Dream. Watch your inboxes. Congratulations and thanks to everyone for playing!

I experience true euphoria when I pick up a book that speaks to me — to my culture, my roots, my Hispanidad. It used to be difficult to find books that spoke to the Hispanic experience in the U.S. It is perhaps why I love Oscar Hijuelos, Cristina Garcia and Sandra Cisneros so much. I got them, they got me, my people.

Not so difficult anymore. Hurrah!

So, this giveaway gives me gigantic pleasure, for I hope that when you pick up these titles, you too will enjoy recognizing yourself, your story on the pages.

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Hachette Group — which we at the Tiki Tiki love and adore for promoting Latino authors — is giving away five titles to 5 amigos of the Tiki Tiki.

The Titles:
Zumba® by Beto Perez and Maggie Greenwood-Robinson. Salsa, shake and merengue your way to tremendo cuerpaso with this exercise craze.
Evenings at the Argentine Club by Julia Amante, whose Argentine roots and American Dream upbringing helped her tell this rich story.
Damas, Dramas, and Ana Ruiz by Belinda Acosta, a first-time author who lives in Austin and says she loves “good, make your soul leap from your body, mariachi.”
Tell Me Something True by Leila Cobo, a journalist, former concert pianist and native of Colombia.
Amigoland by Oscar Casares, whose story centers on two aging hermanos and family feud.

Giveaway Rules/Reglas:

- To win, you don’t need to jump through a bunch of hoops, just say hello and maybe tell us what book on Latino culture has spoken most to you, or tell us which of these titles you are most looking forward to reading.

- One entry per person.

- You have until midnight EST Oct. 15, 2009  to enter.

- Anonymous comments are not eligible.

- You must live in the United States or Canada and provide a street address. Books cannot be shipped to P.O. boxes. (Don’t post your address here)

- Five winners will be randomly selected.

- The publisher will ship the books. The Tiki Tiki is not responsible for materials, damages or delays.

Good luck!
