Contest - Win Alison Bechdel's Graphic Memoir Are You My Mother? and a $100 Threadless Gift Certificate
This week Alison Bechdel's new book, Are You My Mother? is in stores. I adored her previous book, Fun Home (one of my favorite graphic novels ever), this is one of my most anticipated books of the year.
To enter this week's contest, name the person (from your own life or historical) you would most like to read a cartoon memoir about. I am holding out for a graphic memoir on the life of Lenin.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like A Voyage of Discovery, A Book Lover, November Was a Good Month, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, music-related t-shirts like The Official Guide to Music, Boom Box, Sound of the Dark, or anything else that catches your fancy.
If you have already seen the film or it doesn't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate for the DVD.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (May 11th).
