Book Giveaways-After Etan by Lisa R Cohen

Today,the 25th May is the anniversary of the day in 1979 when 6-year-old Etan Patz disappeared from a New York street corner on his way to school and has been observed as National Missing Children's Day since 1983—when it was first dedicated by President Ronald Reagan. This day is a reminder to the nation to renew efforts to reunite missing children with their families and to make child protection a national priority.Read more about it here

Thank You Brianne at Hachette Book Group for allowing me to host this giveaway.I will be giving away 5 copies of After Etan by Lisa R Cohen.
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
ISBN: 9780446582513
Publication date: May 2009
Pages: 379
Illustrations: Illustrated

A former 60 Minutes producer unravels the full story of Etan Patz-his family's desperate search, the heroic efforts to bring the kidnapper to justice, and the investigation into a decades-long mystery.
When Stan and Julie Patz's six-year-old son Etan disappeared in 1979 walking two blocks to the bus stop, on his own for the first time, authorities were stumped.The mystery of Etan's disappearance and the ensuing 25-year investigation would brand him, quite literally, the poster boy for missing children everywhere. But despite the overwhelming publicity the case received in all the years since, the public only knows a fraction of the true story. Working in collaboration with Stuart GraBois, the former Federal Prosecutor who relentlessly pursued the case for decades, and with the exclusive cooperation of the Patz family, Lisa Cohen reveals for the first time the entire dramatic tale: the agonies and triumphs of the Patz family; the disturbing allegations against the prime suspect, and the heroic investigators who, to this day, continue to seek justice.
