Win a copy of Dream in Color: How the Sánchez Sisters Are Making History in Congress By Congresswoman Linda Sánchez & Congresswoman Loretta Sánchez

To enter the contest for a chance to win a copy of this book simply post a comment telling me about your interest in politics and why this book intrigues you. Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you if you win.


About the book:

By sharing moments from their childhood in Southern California, Linda and Loretta will pass on the values and traditions they learned from their parents--Mexican immigrants who, despite not having graduated high school themselves, made sure all seven of their children went to and graduated from college--that enabled them to conquer challenges and make history. They will speak frankly on the professional highs and lows, successes and scandals that constitute their distinguished careers, and show that the key to realizing your dreams is, above all else, always be true to yourself.

Often considered Congress's Odd Couple, these warm witty sisters are not only perfect role models for young Latinas in the US, but for all young women looking to break out and create a brighter future for themselves.

I've been following politics a little more since the last Presidential election. It would be very interesting to see how these women are doing.

Hi, My mom only went through 8th grade and my dad high school because of serving in WWII. One thing my dad wanted was all 3 of his children to have a college degree. We do!
While growing up, politics, whether local, national or world, were always discussed. Please enter me in your book giveaway drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

Although not political in nature, I have followed politics strongly for years in regards to abortion, DOMA and the opposite thereof, embryonic stem cell research,etc. I would hope the Sanchez Sisters are doing the same. Would love to read this book. Please enter me in your contest.

I'm in Canada and have seen a woman Prime Minister, a Black Woman Governor General, and many minority members of parliament. I'd be very interested in reading these women's story as in relation to the US political system!

I hope this is eligible to Canadians lol, if not, good luck to all!

Thanks

This is the first year I have ever been interested in politics, I have always voted but didn't pay attention to the canidates before. Now we watch the news programs to see how our new President is going to handle this situation of the economy. We are seniors and rely on SS for our medical insurance. I would love to win a book as I am an advid reader. My Address is mamat2730@charter.net

I've followed politics ever since the late 80s, when I headed to DC after college. I was fortunate enough to work with some wonderful lobbyists, working with Hill staffers on all kinds of legislation. Although that time of my life feels indeed "like a lifetime ago", I still feel it's my duty to keep current on what goes on in Washington. I've seen the Sanchez sisters many times giving interviews on news networks, and would be quite interested in reading this book.
