Contest - Win Nicole J. Georges' Graphic Novel Calling Dr. Laura, Teddy Wayne's Novel The Love Song of Johnny Valentine, and a $100 Threadless Gift Certificate

Calling Dr. Laura: A Graphic Memoir The Love Song of Johnny Valentine

This week marks the 11th anniversary of the start of Largehearted Boy, which we will mark with a party and this contest.

Two of the finest books of 2013 so far are Nicole St. George's graphic novel Calling Dr. Laura: A Graphic Memoir and Teddy Wayne's second novel The Love Song of Johnny Valentine. Look for Book Notes music playlist essays by both authors in the coming weeks.

To enter this week's contest, leave a comment naming something wonderful happening in 2013 (the Obama inauguration, a new book or album, a baby, etc.) for a chance to win these two books and a $100 Threadless gift certificate.

One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:

A copy of Nicole J. George's graphic novel Calling Dr. Laura: A Graphic Memoir
A copy of Teddy Wayne's novel The Love Song of Johnny Valentine

A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like Storytellers, The Best Channels Since 1465, Fahrenheit 451, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, and music-related t-shirts like Death Note, Funkalicious, Music Snob, or anything else that catches your fancy.

If you have already have the books or they don't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate for the book.

The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (February 1st).
