On the fifth day of Christmas, Overlook Press gave to me...
...TRUE GRIT, TRUE GRIT AND MORE TRUE GRIT!
We have some AMAZING True Grit-related prizes that we’ll be giving away to our wonderful Overlook readers over the next few days to get you as excited as we are about the new Coen Brothers film that’s getting some great early reviews, as well as the classic Charles Portis novel from which the film was adapted.
First, congratulations to Heather B, Jenna! and Don, winners of yesterday's contest. They'll each receive a signed copy of the amazing DRAWING IS THINKING by art and design legend Milton Glaser.
Now, onto today's contest. We've never done ANYTHING like this before, but we're beyond thrilled to be offering you a chance to win these amazing prizes tied into the new film release of True Grit. You could win:
TICKETS TO AN ADVANCE SCREENING OF TRUE GRIT IN NYC: Unfortunately, this is only open to our New York City-area readers. But get two FREE passes to the ADVANCE True Grit screening on December 14 at 7 p.m.!
OUR TRUE GRIT BONANZA PACKAGE: Copies of True Grit (the brand-new movie tie-in edition and the limited-edition Hollywood hardcover), a True Grit movie poster, and 2 movie passes you can use to see True Grit in a convenient theatre at your leisure.
And 5 winners will receive a copy of the new movie tie-in edition of True Grit!
TO WIN: Tell us why you love TRUE GRIT, the book, or are excited to read it! Enter through Facebook, Twitter, or by commenting here. You can also enter by sending us a link to your blog where you have an entry about TRUE GRIT (email a link to kgales at overlookny dot com). That means each person can enter up to four times. PLEASE indicate if you are able to see the advance screening in NYC on the 14th so you are entered into that part of this contest. (For Twitter, given the character limits, just tag #truegritnyc for the screening or #truegritbook for the rest of the prizes.)
The NYC winner will be announced on Monday 12/13 and the Bonanza Package/book winners will be announced on Thursday, December 16. NYC entrants who did not win the screening tickets are still eligible for our other prizes. GOOD LUCK! And happy True Grit-reading!
