One of our department’s favorite books of the season is Longbourn by Jo Baker—the belowstairs answer to Pride and Prejudice.  Many librarians obviously agree, because it was selected as the #2 pick for the October LibraryReads list!  Now that holds lists at libraries are spiking, we know it may be tough for Readers’ Advisory librarians to get their hands on a copy.  So we’d like to gift a hardcover edition to 50 lucky librarians—our way of sharing the Longbourn love!  To enter, please fill out this form.  You’ll also have a chance to request a pack of Longbourn bookmarks for your library!
