I can't think of any city I love more than New York! Every year that I visit the city for BEA, I have a wonderful time just soaking in the sights and sounds. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that the memoir LIFE IN NEW YORK: HOW I LEARNED TO LOVE SQUEEGEE MEN, TOKEN SUCKERS, TRASH, TWISTERS, AND SUBWAY SHARKS by Laura Pedersen appeals to me. This book is Ms. Pedersen's account of living in New York City for 30 years. She's experienced the good and the bad that the city offers while being the youngest person to have a seat on the stock exchange, performing stand-up, and writing for The New York Times.
I have a copy of LIFE IN NEW YORK to share with one lucky reader. To enter, just fill out the form below before August 6th at 11:59 p.m. EST. I will randomly select and notify the winner the following day. This contest is open to those of you with U.S. addresses only. Good luck!
