Win a signed copy of SHOTGUN LOVESONGS!

Nick Butler polaroidWe (and many of you) recently had the pleasure of meeting Nickolas Butler at PLA and we learned a few things about him:

1) He was working in a liquor store when he found out he was admitted into the Iowa Writers' Workshop

2) He says "Holy cats!" a lot

3) He's incredibly nice (we expected that from the whole Midwest thing) and well-deserving of the praise for his book, SHOTGUN LOVESONGS

And while we were at PLA, we scored a signed copy of SHOTGUN LOVESONGS for one lucky librarian! So if you missed Nick at PLA, now's your chance to get a signed copy of his book!

To enter the giveaway, simply email from your professional/library-issued e-mail address (subject: Shotgun Lovesongs) by Sunday, April 6. Make sure to include your library's mailing address to be placed in the random drawing. Read on for the fine print. Good luck!

UPDATE 4/14: This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Glenna Clark Fallin of West Feliciana Parish Library in St. Francisville, LA!
