Don’t miss your chance to have lunch with a best-selling author. Participate in the “A Tale for Three Counties “ review contest.
A handful of winners will be chosen to dine with S.M. Hulse, whose debut novel “Black River” is this year’s selection.
To enter, readers must answer one of two questions about the book in no more than 150 words. The entries will be judged by the “Tale” committee, and the best will win a spot at the table with the author for lunch, which is scheduled for noon Friday, March 11.
The questions are designed to evoke a more thought-provoking response than just a simple book review.
Leslie DeLooze, adult services librarian at Richmond Memorial Library and co-convener of the “Tale” committee has said that the narrow scope of the questions “allows readers to focus on one element of the book and to write about that rather than giving a plot summary.”
The two questions are:
• What role do you think Scott plays in Wesley’s journey toward peace in the town of Black River?
• The novel ends with Wesley and Dennis, “father and son,” beginning a conversation. What do you think the novel suggests the future holds for the two men?
Send your review to The Daily News c/o Matt Krueger, 2 Apollo Dr., Batavia 14020, or firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 16.
