PUSH Spotlight - Author Eireann Corrigan and giveaways

I completely missed the boat on last week's Top Ten Author's That Deserve More Recognition hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  If I had been more on top of things and planned to write my post, I would have definitely put Eireann Corrigan at the top of the list. I have been a huge fan of hers for her long time. Her memoir, You Remind Me of You, written in a series of poems, is one of my favorite books. I'm pretty sure this is the first book form the imprint PUSH that I had ever read. If you're not familiar with PUSH books, I recommend that you check them out at

Eireann is also the author of Splintering, a verse novel, Ordinary Ghosts, and Accomplice.

Because I want more people to know about her, I have purchased some of her books to giveaway. There will be 3 prizes:

Prize 1
a copy of You Remind Me of You
and Splintering

Prize 2
a copy of You Remind Me of You

Prize 3
a copy of Splintering

You Remind Me of You (from Goodreads) A startling autobiographical account of a young woman's battle with eating disorders that put her in and out of hospitals over a span of four years and led to her own parents fighting for the right to commit her. When her last source of support, her boyfriend, attempts suicide and ends up in a coma, she is forced to find strength from within. A courageous story about the strange paths we take to recovery.

Splintering (from Goodreads) It's about the aftermath. It's about what happens after a stranger breaks into a house and attacks a family. It's about the sisters who must barricade themselves with their mother behind a splintering door while tethered on the phone to 911. It's about the father who nearly dies. It's about the son who hides in the basement. It's about the days, the weeks, the months. After. Told in alternating brother-sister perspectives, this is a powerful, moving story about a family that has its façade shattered by a random act of violence and must deal with everything that is revealed underneath.

For a chance to win these books, fill out the form below. Winners will be selected on April 28th, 2011 using The first person selected will receive Prize 1, the second person selected will win Prize 2, and the third person selected will win Prize 3.
