Hi, everyone. :-)
I've gotten e-mails from plenty of you expressing interest in free copies of the book Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close as well as free screenings for the film. Today, I've gotten further clarification on the supply of these items. I've copied and pasted, beneath my e-mail signature below, the text from the e-mail I received today.
Sadly, I regret to inform you that there are no more copies of the book available.
Furthermore, the information about the free screening of the film has been given to me at very short notice. Basically, the screening will be held tomorrow, January 11th at the Century Centre 9 theater in San Francisco at 7:30 PM. To get free passes, you go to a website and enter in a code (see the below e-mail text for
details). You can download as many passes as you want, but seating at the theater is first come, first serve.
As for free posters for the film, it doesn't sound like there are any limited supplies right now. If you want one (or more), I can forward your mailing address to the contact person, and hopefully, she'll take care of it.
I apologize for the disappointing news. I really wish the information would've been much more clearer from the beginning.
Have a good evening. :-)
Organizer, East Bay Book Club
