And the Winner of BORROWED NAMES Is...

I am happy to announce that mgudlewski is the winner of Borrowed Names: Poems about Laura Ingalls Wilder, Madam C. J. Walker, Marie Curie, and Their Daughters, which was written by Jeannine Atkins.

Congratulations, mgudlewski!!! Please email me your address. Thanks!

I’ve decided to extend the “final days” of National Poetry Month through Thursday, May 5th.

Final Days of National Poetry Month: April 29—May 5 (Winner announced on May 6th.)

The Wild Rose Reader poetry prize for the “final days” of National Poetry Month will be At the Sea Floor Café: Odd Ocean Critter Poems, which was written by Leslie Bulion and illustrated by Leslie Evans. You can read my review of the book here. To have your name entered into the drawing for At the Sea Floor Café —all you have to do is leave a comment at any of my Wild Rose Reader posts dated April 29-May 5. (NOTE: If you leave comments at two posts, your name will be entered twice…and so on.)

Note to Previous Winners: I plan to mail all the book prizes out in early May.

Many thanks, Elaine. I'm really looking forward to reading Borrowed Names by Jeannine Atkins. I've read a few pages of it as a Kindle sample, and it was love at first read. Thanks again.

Great to see about the sea floor; several of our classes visit the ocean most every year, so I'll let them know about it.

Monica, thanks for the kind words and I'm happy you won a copy of Borrowed Names! Elaine, thank you for holding this contest. And I think extending April and Poetry Month is a wise idea.
