Today, April 23rd, 2016, marks William Shakespeare's 400th birthday! Incidentally, it's also the anniversary of his death. In celebration, I have a copy of Worlds Elsewhere: Journeys Around Shakespeare's Globe by Andrew Dickinson, provided by Henry Holt, to give away.
If you ever wanted to know how Shakespeare's fascination with travel, though he never went anywhere, influenced his work, this is the book for you. But it's more than that, it's also a journey through time as the world has embraced him and his works, of how different cultures have interpreted and assimilated his work into their societies. It's a fascinating book, and one that I'm still digging into. I will have a review coming up shortly, but for now, I'm hoping you guys are ready to find out how to get your own copy.
All you have to do is leave a comment, telling me a personal tidbit about your relationship with Shakespeare. It's open to interpretation, so I'm looking forward to reading your comments. Please leave an email address that I can contact you with, if you are the winner. Sadly, this is only open to U.S. Residents. The giveaway will run until 11:59 pm CST, on 5/7/2016. The winner will be selected by random draw, and I will contact the winner by email. The winner will then have 4 days to get in touch with me, before I draw a new winner.
So good luck, and if you want to read more about the book, please visit the website at: WorldsElsewhereBook.com
