Chicago/Movies Book Giveaway Winners Announced!

To start, a sincere THANKS to all who participated in the first giveaway hosted by Once Upon a Screen.  And another to Josh Williams, Publicist of Triumph Books for sending me copies of Hollywood on Lake Michigan: 100+ Years of Chicago and the Movies to review and share with those who visit this blog.


An enjoyable and informative read, you can take a look at my review of Hollywood on Lake Michigan: 100+ Years of Chicago and the Movies here.  That is the same post where I announced the giveaway – three copies to give those interested and all they had to do was mention their favorite film that was either filmed or based in Chicago.

Sixteen people participated in the week-long event, which ended at midnight last night (or this morning).  To pick the winners I put the names in a box (I didn’t have a hat handy) and asked a neighbor who I was having coffee with this morning to pick three at random.  And…here they are…

The winners of the Hollywood on Lake Michigan…book giveaway!

If any of you happen to live in or near Chicago, Michael Corcoran (@hollyonlakemich), co-author of Hollywood on Lake Michigan: 100+ Years of Chicago and the Movies has agreed to sign your copy.  Thank you to Michael for that!  I cannot wait to visit Chicago and take your tour!

Until next time lovelies, my very best…

  1. Thank you so much Aurora and Michael too! My two favorite subjects in one book is just priceless for me. Chicago means the world to me and always has. I lived there for 10 years, and thankfully the Loop is now only a couple of hours away. I’d love to take Michael’s tour ASAP, This was the perfect giveaway and I’m thrilled to have won a copy of this book! Thanks again!
