The next lucky book club will get 10 vouchers for “Ruined” at Mixed Blood

One of 104 book clubs registered with MinnPost’s Book Club Club will be treated to a night of great theater at Mixed Blood.

We’re giving away 10 vouchers good for any Wednesday night performance of “Ruined” — winner of the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and lots of other big honors.

The BCC drawing will be October 21, just a week from today — and we’ll notify the winning club right away so you can make your plans. The play runs through November 22.

The New York Times called the play “…strong and absorbing” and NY1 described it as “…a crackling thriller, with humor, plot twists, and lots of humanity.”

And a P.S. from last week, when I didn’t have time to say anything about the last two clubs that won copies of Ian Shive’s coffee table book about the national parks.

Thursday’s winner was Alice’s Book Club — 9 women who meet monthly in Minneapolis to talk about fiction. Current read: “Driftless” by David Rhodes. Recent reads: “The Blood of Flowers” by Anita Amirrezvani. “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak. “People of the Book” by Geraldine Brooks. “Divisadero” by Michael  Ondaatje.

And Friday’s winner was the Procrastinators’ Book Club — 7 women who meet monthly in the TC metro to enjoy good books, good food, good conversation and a little wine. Current read: “The Summer of Ordinary Ways” by Nicole Lea Helget. Recent reads: “Fall to Grace” by Kerry Casey. “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay” by Michael Chabon. “Remembering the Bones” by  Frances Itani. “Wuthering Heights” by Emily Brontë.

Congrats to all.
