Hug a Medievalist Day giveaway!

I'll bet you thought next Sunday is Easter, and you would certainly be right. But it is also time to celebrate Hug a Medievalist Day again! I recently moved into a new house and in packing up the old one, discovered that I have two copies of Medieval Women. This slim book (112 pp) is a collection of lectures by medieval historian Eileen Power covering "...medieval theories of the woman's work and her place in the world." These lectures "...give a vivid account...of the lady, the peasant, the townswoman, the nun. A chapter on education surveys the schooling available to girls, as well as the subjects and skills that were taught."

(Your copy's book cover will not look exactly like this. I couldn't find a copy of the cover on the prize version.)

If this sounds like a book you'd like for Hug a Medievalist Day, just enter via the Rafflecopter form below and leave a comment telling me the name of a medieval character, real or fictional, that you would like to hug.

Deadline to enter is Hug a Medievalist Day (March 31), 2013. The winner will be drawn on April 1. (That that's no fool!) USA entries only, please.

OFFICIAL RULES: NO PURCHASE NECESSSARY. Entrants must be 18 years or older. Winners will be selected on April 1, 2013 and have 48 hours to respond to an email notifying them of their win. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW. Questions? Contact me at jdipastena@yahoo.com.
