It’s time for a new #BwayBookClub read and I am thrilled to announce we will be reading Karen Abbott’s American Rose: The Life and Times of Gypsy Rose Lee.
It has been a bit since we’ve read a non-fiction book here in the book club and I think it’s about time. This is obviously about the famous Gypsy Rose Lee that the beloved musical Gypsy is based on, so it’s right up our alley. The best part is, we’re giving away FIVE copies of the book. So that means even more of you can read along with us. See below for details on the contest and the book!
How to Enter:
As usual, we’re giving you multiple ways to enter, and you can do all of them to increase your chances. We have a random number chosen and that’s how we choose the winner, so all entries will be counted separately. Just remember, one per type.
1. Comment: Leave a comment below telling us something you’ve been wondering about Gypsy Rose Lee. Whether it’s about how she really lived, if certain parts of the musical are true…any of it! This will help us create great discussion questions when we start to read. If you choose this method, please be sure to include your twitter handle. Feel free to ramble!
