The Letter Q Giveaway!

How utterly wonderful! Scholastic is giving me the opportunity to give away TWO copies of their recently published anthology, The Letter Q: Queer Writers' Notes to Their Younger Selves. It's hard to imagine a timelier publication, what with all the support (and, sadly, the continuation of archaic opponents) there has been for gay marriage lately. This would be a great book to have in your collection!

About the book:
In this anthology, sixty-four award-winning authors and illustrators such as Michael Cunningham, Amy Bloom, Jacqueline, Woodson, Terrence McNally, Gregory Maguire, David Levithan, and Armistead Maupin, make imaginative journeys into their pasts, telling their younger selves what they would have liked to know then about their lives as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender people. Through stories, in pictures, with bracing honesty, these are words of love, messages of understanding, reasons to hold on for the better future ahead. They will tell you things about your favorite authors that you never knew before. And they will tell you about yourself.

Learn more about The Letter Q on their Facebook page.

Two (2) winners will receive a copy of The Letter Q. Enter using the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway is open to US mailing addresses only and ends Monday, June 4, 2012. Winners will be notified via email; sorry, I won't be able to announce winners on this page. Good luck!

  1. I'd definitely tell her that the opinions of others doesn't matter.

  2. I would tell my younger self to not worry so much because it works out in the end.

  3. I would tell myself not to worry about other people and to not give up on anything.

  4. I would tell my younger self to always be yourself because like Dr. Suess said, "Those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

  5. Everything I want to say to my younger self is totally cliche, and I wouldn't listen anyway. But those cliches turned out to have some truth to them, so don't dismiss things out of hand. Find your own truth.

  6. I would tell my younger self that I'll grow into my personality - and that the things that made me "weird" in my younger years would become assets as an adult.

  7. I would tell myself that the things that seem so important and terrible aren't nearly as bad as you think.

  8. I would tell myself it gets worse before it gets better and to just hang in there.

  9. I would tell myself to not follow the crowd and to be influenced by other people. Be a leader, not a follower.
