The American Journey of Barack Obama -Book Give Away

Good News! A Giveaway!

Hachette books is generously providing a copy of this book to one reader of A Circle of Books.

For decades Americans have turned to LIFE to see, understand, and remember the most important events and people of our time. Just as LIFE once opened up the glittering Kennedy White House, LIFE now focuses its lens on Barack Obama. The American Journey of Barack Obama covers the candidate from his childhood and adolescence to his time as editor of The
Harvard Law Review
and his Chicago activist years, culminating with the excitement and fervor of the historic 2008 Democratic National Convention. The unfolding drama of Obama's life and political career is cinematic in scope, and never has it been presented so compellingly. In addition to a powerful array of photographs that were taken by many of the country's greatest photographers (and some that were snapped, in the quiet moments, by Obama family members themselves), this book also includes a Foreword by Senator Edward M. Kennedy, an
incisive narrative biography and original essays by some of our finest writers, including Gay Talese, Charles Johnson, Melissa Fay Greene, Andrei Codrescu, Fay Weldon, Richard Norton Smith, Bob Greene and several others. Many readers will find a new understanding of Obama. All readers will feel that they are bearing witness to a singular, undeniably American story.

The contest closes on November 14th at midnight, Pacific Time. The winner will be announced and contacted on November 15th!

To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment on my blog with a way to get a hold of you (a link, an email, etc.).

(will ship to US and Canada addresses)

Good Luck!

I'm so happy about Obama winning the election; I can even feel the mood lift a little in society, because people, including myself and the rest of the younger generation, are really eager to see a change and proud to be able to witness history in the making. Great giveaway!
