Win This Book! Chilean Bicentennial Update
Chilean liberator Bernardo O’Higgins (depicted above by the famous Mexican muralist David Alfaro Siquieros at Chillán’s Escuela México) would not be pleased. As of Wednesday evening, California time, we have had only two winners in the contest for four copies of Moon Handbooks Chile offered in Monday’s quiz. Another contestant actually came up with the correct answer, but did not follow the rules that stipulated sending the response to the email in the header above, and not to the comments section on the page. I don’t want to be picky, but I would hope that the person in question would resend her entry through the proper channels to claim her book; even if she does that leaves one copy available.
In any event, I’ll have to impose a deadline of Saturday the 18th, when 16 million Chileans will celebrate their independence, for the contest. If there are no more correct answers by then, I will have to withdraw the remaining copies for another day.
