Announcing the Kurt Vonnegut/ Graduation Window Display Contest

Win a signed, original printed piece of art by Kurt Vonnegut!

In celebration of the April 8th release of If This Isn’t Nice, What Is?, Dan Wakefield’s collection of Kurt Vonnegut’s tongue-in-cheek words of advice for graduates, Seven Stories is holding a window display contest for independent bookstores!

UntitledHere is your chance to create a special window featuring If This Isn’t Nice, What Is?, rounded out with other Seven Stories’ Vonnegut titles as well as Vonnegut backlists from his other publishers. We also have some downloadable images for your use (see info below). The best window display will be awarded a piece of original, signed Vonnegut art. Two runners-up will each receive 5 copies of the book each, signed by Dan Wakefield.

The contest will run May 1st-May 15th. Photos of the displays must be submitted by email to by May 20th. Winners will be selected by Seven Stories Press staff and will be announced at BEA in the Seven Stories Press booth, posted on Seven Stories Press social media, and announced by press release.
