Yesterday, we observed Election Day by giving away two signed copies of D. G. Hart’s From Billy Graham to Sarah Palin.

Now that the election is over, however, we find our eyes once again open to everything else that’s going on in the world this November — and, as it turns out, there’s quite a lot happening. According to, November is the appointed time to celebrate International Drum Month, National Model Railroad Month, National Novel Writing Month, Peanut Butter Lovers Month, and many other special (and even, perhaps, not so special) occasions.

This November also marks the second annual Picture Book Month (a special occasion we can wholeheartedly appreciate). To celebrate, we’re giving away a set of three hardcover picture books by Ruth Vander Zee on Pinterest. One lucky pinner will receive copies of Always with You, Eli Remembers, and Mississippi Morning.

To enter the drawing, simply:

  1. Pin or repin the image above.
  2. Let us know about it in the comments below.
