Jennifer Weiner Hosts Hollywood Getaway Contest

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Good in Bed, author Jennifer Weiner is hosting “Cannie’s Hollywood Getaway” contest–a chance for readers to win a luxurious trip to Los Angeles.

Prospective contestants need to log on to Weiner’s Facebook page and write about their best personal memory from the last ten years (minimum 125 words and maximum 175 words). The contest will be accepting submissions until May 31st.

Here’s more about the prizes: “Much like the beloved Cannie Shapiro, a winner and a guest will fly to Los Angeles and experience the best Hollywood has to offer. From Sunday, June 19th through Wednesday, June 22nd, they will stay at the luxurious Beverly Wilshire, enjoying breakfasts and spa treatments, a workout with a trainer, dinner at one of Los Angeles’ top restaurants, and an invitation to watch a taping of State of Georgia, the new ABC Family sitcom co-written and executive-produced by Jen herself.”
