Win a piece of Harlan County! This doesn’t mean we’re giving away Miss Harlan County, Mari Adkins (or her enthusiastic suggestion of coal mine slurry water). No, we’re talking about actual Harlan County memorabilia!

2) Be sure to mention the contest with the link.
3) Bring your linkage to our attention via a comment on this post or via an email so that we know to enter you for the drawing. If you link AND pre-order* the book, you get two chances.
