Giveaway - Into the Beautiful North - Luis Alberto Urrea


Still on vacation! Yet another giveaway!!

Here's something totally different for your book club to try - Into the Beautiful North by Luis Alberto Urrea. And the reading group guide is already done for you!

From the publisher:

"Nineteen-year-old Nayeli works at a taco shop in her Mexican village and dreams about her father, who journeyed to the US when she was young. Recently, it has dawned on her that he isn't the only man who has left town. In fact, there are almost no men in the village--they've all gone north. While watching The Magnificent Seven, Nayeli decides to go north herself and recruit seven men--her own "Siete Magníficos"--to repopulate her hometown and protect it from the bandidos who plan on taking it over.

Filled with unforgettable characters and prose as radiant as the Sinaloan sun, Into the Beautiful North is the story of an irresistible young woman's quest to find herself on both sides of the fence."

Read an excerpt of Into the Beautiful North.

I have three copies to giveaway courtesy of The Hachette Book Group. Open to both US and Canada, no po boxes please. Simply comment to be entered. Ends Saturday July 31 at 6 pm EST.
