The winners of last week’s book giveaway of Ling & Ting Share a Birthday by Grace Lin are: Aurelia Lau Crider and Andrea Louise Dawson Webster! As you will hear in the podcast, I came in on the red-eye and this exhausted little brain of mine forgot to mention Aurelia and Andrea on the podcast this week. You will get a great big shout out from me next week. In the meantime please send your snail mail address to support@katiedavis.com so we can get your book out to you. Special thanks to Grace Lin for the generous giveway!
