Calling all book clubs!
Join Jennifer Chiaverini's #BackstoryBookClub and win free books by New York Times Bestselling Author Jennifer Chiaverini and other prizes—including an autographed Advance Reader’s Edition of her forthcoming novel, Fates and Traitors: A Novel of John Wilkes Booth and an opportunity to Skype with the author!
1. Register your book club by writing to [email protected]. Be sure to include the following required information:
• Your book club’s name, location, and a brief description of what makes your book club unique.
• The name, email address, and mailing address of a contact person for your club. All prizes will be shipped to this address.
• A photo (jpg or png) of your book club enjoying one of your meetings. Please note that this photo will be used for promotional purposes including social media, newsletters, and winner announcements. By submitting a photo, you are granting Jennifer, Dutton, and Penguin Random House permission to do so.
• Your club’s top three picks for which of Jennifer’s novels you will win. (NOTE: The choice of novel will be determined by Jennifer Chiaverini or her representative based upon availability. In the event that none of the club’s top three picks are available, another novel will be substituted.)
2. Beginning June 15, 2016, every month one book club chosen at random will win:
• 12 autographed paperback editions of one of Jennifer Chiaverini’s novels.
• A personal letter to your book club from Jennifer telling you about her inspiration for that novel and other behind-the-scenes details—the novel’s Backstory.
• A Reading Group Guide for the novel.
• One autographed Advance Reader’s Edition of Jennifer’s forthcoming novel, Fates and Traitors: A Novel of John Wilkes Booth for your club to share.
• The opportunity to Skype with Jennifer when your club discusses her book.*
3. Once your club is registered, you will automatically be entered to win each month’s drawing—until you win, of course! We want to spread the fun around, so only one prize package is available per club.
4. As a special bonus, every book club that registers is eligible to arrange a Skype chat with Jennifer Chiaverini, even if you don’t win a monthly drawing! All you have to do is to choose Fates and Traitors for your book club selection between October 1, 2016-July 31, 2017, and Jennifer will join your discussion via Skype!*
*The duration of the Skype chat will be approximately one hour and will take place at a mutually agreed upon date and time. The book club is responsible for providing their own computer or other compatible device, an internet condition, and Skype membership.
