Groovy Giveaway: Patty Farmer's The Persian Room Presents
Courtesy of Vantage Press, this week's Groovy Giveaway is a copy of Patty Farmer's book, The Persian Room Presents: An Oral History of New York's Most Magical Night Spot. For more than 40 years (from 1934 to 1975), an unparalleled array of performers graced the stage of this nightclub - and now Farmer has collected some great stories from many of those stars, including Diahann Carroll, Connie Stevens, Lesley Gore, Carol Lawrence, Leslie Uggams, Constance Towers, Michele Lee, Lainie Kazan, Julie Wilson, Celeste Holm, Kaye Ballard, Andy Williams and Polly Bergen.
To enter to win this Groovy Giveaway, all you have to do is email your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner must have a US or Canadian mailing address, and entries close at midnight on Thursday, March 22 (CST).
If you would like to give away something groovy (DVDs, CDs, books, theatre/concert tickets) on DEEP DISH, please email me at email@example.com.
