One on One With the Author

Did you ever want to spice up your book club in a way you've never been able to do?

How about having a national bestselling author make a visit?

Ballantine Books is holding a contest to bring the author of The Good Good Pig: The Extraordinary Life of Christopher Hogwood to you.

A naturalist by trade, Sy Montgomery had always felt more comfortable with animals than with people. So she gladly opened her heart and home to a sickly piglet who had been crowded away from feedings by his stronger siblings. Yet Sy had no inkling that this piglet, later named Christopher Hogwood, would not only survive, but flourish - and through Christopher, she soon found herself united with the people in her small town community in ways she had never dreamed possible.

The Good Good Pig is a story about discovering the meaning of family, the value of community, our ability to love and be loved, and our relationship with all creatures great and small. Not only will this not-so-little piggy steal your heart, he'll have your book club talking for hours.

Choose The Good Good Pig as your next book club selection and enter for a chance to have author Sy Montgomery attend one of your club's meetings in person. The first 200 clubs to respond will receive a free hardcover copy of The Good Good Pig. Visit for full rules and contest details.

Thanks to Ballantine Books for making the above offer. The book is available in hardcover now and in paperback on April 17. Book clubs purchasing five or more copies can get the hardcover for the same price as the paperback between now and that date.
