It is so heartwarming to see Greek Americans produce books and materials to teach children in the diaspora about our wonderful Greek traditions. I was blessed to get in contact with Anna Prokos not too long ago, a great children's author out of New Jersey. Anna has just produced a book about the Vasilopita tradition and about St. Basil. Her book is called the Lucky Cake and it is available in both Greek and English
(How lucky are we?!).
Mrs. Prokos has generously offered a book to be given away on my blog. So, this is your chance to be one of the fist to have a copy of The Lucky Cake. Please a post a comment to be eligible for the drawing that will take place a week from today, December 11th.
