Yesterday I posted Belle Boggs' Book Notes music playlist essay for her debut short story collection, Mattaponi Queen. After posting the piece, I heard she was furiously canning her farm's berry harvest, and her publisher (the marvelous Graywolf Press) offered to give away a book paired with a jar of Belle's homemade jam to one lucky Largehearted Boy reader.
Never one to turn down homemade preserves (or the opportunity to share them), this week's prize is a jar of Belle Bogg's homemade jam along with a copy of her new story collection.
To enter the contest, leave a comment in this post with the author (living or dead) you would most like to sit down to a meal with.
The winner will receive the following prizes:
Belle Boggs' new short story collection, Mattaponi Queen
A jar of Belle Boggs' homemade jam, complete with a "Mattaponi Queen" label
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight CT Friday evening (June 6th).
