GIVEAWAY! Corked: a memoir by Kathryn Borel

Another giveaway!
Thanks Hachette Book Group!

THERE WILL BE
FIVE WINNERS!
Corked
by
Kathryn Borel


Hachette is offering U.S. residents the chance to win one of five copies of "Corked," a memoir by Kathryn Borel. Here's how the publisher describes this brand new, yet-to-be-released book:
Meet Kathryn Borel, bon vivant and undutiful daughter. Now meet her father, Philippe, former chef, eccentric genius, and wine aficionado extraordinaire. Kathryn is like her father in every way but one: she's totally ignorant when it comes to wine. And although Philippe has devoted untold parenting hours to delivering impassioned oenological orations, she has managed to remain unenlightened. But after an accident and a death, Kathryn realizes that by shutting herself off to her father's greatest passion, she will never really know him.
Kathryn Borel was born in 1979 in Toronto, the daughter of a hotelier.
After several years, she became the older sister to Nico, who was named after the family cat. She spent her early years living in hotels in Paris, Bermuda, Dallas, and New Jersey, finally settling in Quebec City.
In 2002 she moved to Toronto to follow a man. The relationship ended.
She continues to live in Toronto where she works at the Canadian Broadcasting Company. She has written food and wine reviews for radio and print. Her journalism includes a column which ran in the National Post under the title "Indignities." Corked is her first book.
