Shape of the Eye (Updated) Giveaway

Congrats to the winners: Brianna and Astra!

The Shape of the Eye, by George Estreich, is one of those unique, must-read, memoirs that takes the reader on a journey of the past, and makes the reader think about how we got to the present, in terms of society's perceptions on people with Down syndrome.

I did a review and giveaway of this book back in Oct 2011, and another giveaway in Oct 2012. This book has just recently been re-released in paperback and I am hosting a giveaway for 2 winners.

The paperback has an afterword that updates readers on Laura (George's daughter), and the rest of the family, since the hardcover was released. George also discusses some societal quandaries that have come up with the advances in technology, science, and research.

Parents.com recently did a Q&A with George (although I did cringe at the lead-in describing "...his Down syndrome daughter..." instead of the use of people-first language); and The Shape of the Eye gets a 4-star review and "Pick of the Week" in the April 29th edition of People Magazine.

If you would like to win a copy of this Oregon Book Award Winner, please leave a comment (making sure I have a way to contact you). Contest open to those in the US and Canada.

We would love this! My 8 year old daughter is devouring information to learn more about our new little guy, Owen, who is 4 months old. Sounds like this would be a great read together!
