winners of our olive editions contest

  • About the author EB
  • January 11, 2011

A while back, we ran a contest asking people which books they’d love to see as olive editions, promising to randomly pick a winner to win a set of the new ones. We let this contest go on a little longer than normal to give as many people as possible a chance to enter, so, to make up for all that time, I’m not going to give away one set . . . I’m going to give away FIVE!

The winners are:

Sharon
Vic
Traci
Kate
Jean

I’ll be emailing you all shortly to get your addresses. For those of you who didn’t win, if you’re still interested in the olive editions, stay tuned for the next entry.

So, somewhere out there in the world there existed this photo of Bob Dylan and The Band jamming with Cher:

Inspired, our friends at the improvisational writing site QuickMuse asked Rick Moody and David Lehman to compose responses. You can find them here and here. But they didn’t stop there. Now, QuickMuse and the 14th Street Y are also presenting Moody and Lehman in conversation about Bob Dylan on January 19.

What do you guys think—what led to Bob Dylan and Cher playing together? What the heck did they talk about? What did they play?
