One Times Square Giveaway!

We just recently surpassed 600 "likes" on our David R. Godine, Publisher, Facebook page, so we wanted to thank all of our wonderful readers by offering a book giveaway!

One lucky reader will win a free copy of One Times Square: A Century of Change at the Crossroads of the World by Joe McKendry. You may have noticed that One Times Square has been getting a lot of attention lately - so far this year, it has been selected to the Society of Illustrators' "The Original Art 2012", named one of The New York Times' Best Illustrated Children's Books of 2012, and been chosen as one of Publishers Weekly's Best Children's Nonfiction Books of 2012! It is a beautiful book that tells the story, through words and pictures, of the history of Times Square. The New York Times called it "a handsome and highly readable book, one that will be pored over cover to cover by young New Yorkers, real and aspiring."
