To celebrate Missed Connections at the recent BookExpo America in New York, Workman printed posters of Polka Dots in the Strand and we have five (signed) to give away! Leave a comment below to enter. Winners will be drawn democratically, using the fool proof chapeau method, and announced next Thursday.
Messages in bottles, smoke signals, letters written in the sand; the modern equivalents are the funny, sad, beautiful, hopeful, hopeless, poetic posts on Missed Connections websites. Every day hundreds of strangers reach out to other strangers on the strength of a glance, a smile or a blue hat. Their messages have the lifespan of a butterfly. I'm trying to pin a few of them down.
