WANTED: Freedom in Verse
Punching the Air by Ibi Zoboi and Yusef Salaam
"A sixteen-year-old boy, artist, and poet is wrongfully convicted and incarcerated for a crime he did not commit after tragedy strikes in a gentrifying neighborhood. With the system biased against him, he realizes the only way to change his story is to write it himself."
The Bookmarks Classified "Date-with-a-Book" Raffle will allow participants to choose among 20 titles for a hardcover new book by reading the ad. The classifieds will have an intriguing description of the mystery book for "date night," and each raffle ticket purchased for $40 will allow the participant their chosen book and one entry for 20 prizes, ranging from gift cards and bottles of Raffaldini wine to the grand prize of a $500 gift card to Bookmarks. Gift cards are from: Oriental Trading, Great Outdoors Company, Jason's Deli, the App Store, Carrabba's, and more!
New classifieds will be added regularly over the two-week period with a grand reveal of all book titles on Friday, September 25.
The raffle, auction, and bidding will end on Saturday, September 26 at 11 a.m. The raffle winners will be announced at noon on Facebook with item pickups beginning at 1 p.m. from Bookmarks. Pick up begins at 1 p.m. on Sept. 26.
If you need the book mailed, an additional $4.50 will be added to your check out.
Please note that Classified "Date-with-a-Book" winners will be chosen at random. No person employed by Bookmarks or a person living in the staff member's household may win a raffle prize and are ineligible to participate. Each hardcover book has a fair market value of $17 - $32. Wine cannot always be shipped over state lines so a gift card of the same value will replace the wine if a winner is out of state.
