Many attendees enjoyed the Classic Twists webcast during this year’s SummerTeen virtual event. Author/illustrator Sean Michael Wilson was a panelist on that presentation (still available for on-demand viewing!), and just got in touch with SLJTeen to announce that his latest title, The Book Of Five Rings, is now available —and Shambala Publications is giving away ten copies to SLJTeen readers!
This manga version of Japanese classic The Book of Five Rings, the iconic book of confrontation and victory by the famed 17th-century duelist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi, reinvigorates the classic, making it more accessible and appealing to a wide audience. With atmospheric manga art by Chie Kutsuwada, and a fluid script adaptation by Wilson, the manga version works both as an engaging visual guide to Japanese swordsmanship and strategy, and as a view into Musashi’s world. If you’d like to win a copy for your library, send an email with your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject Book of Fine Rings contest. Ten lucky winners will be chosen at random and notified via email by October 1.
