Julie & Julia by Julie Powell: Giveaway (7/13) CLOSED

Monday, June 22, 2009 Posted by Dina N

*Update: Check out my review of Julie & Julia! *
Have you heard about the new Julie & Julia movie? It is directed by Nora Ephron, one of my favorite filmmakers, and stars Meryl Streep, one of my favorite actresses! It is based on two true stories, Julie Powell's Julie & Julia and My Life in France, by Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme. I came across the Julie & Julia book recently, and it sounds delightful. I have not read it yet but it is definitely on my list!

The movie comes out in August, and now you have the chance to win Julie Powell's memoir and read it this summer.

Book Description

Julie Powell, nearing thirty and trapped in a dead-end secretarial job, resolves to reclaim her life by cooking in the span of a single year, every one of the 524 recipes in Julia Child's legendary Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Her unexpected reward: not just a newfound respect for calves' livers and aspic, but a new life-lived with gusto.
