Enter to win a copy of this amazing-sounding anthology from more than two dozen fathers of girls: What I Would Tell Her: 28 Devoted Dads on Bringing Up, Holding On to and Letting Go of Their Daughters, edited by Andrea N. Richesin.

What's one thing you learned from your father or from another father figure in your life?

From the book jacket:

"In this surprisingly vulnerable collection, twenty-eight talented fathers explore the complex, enigmatic bond they have with their daughters. These endearing, often funny, and sometimes heartbreaking stories have in common an overpowering sense of responsibility and a depth of affection that is unflinchingly tender. Through their shared experiences, they examine relationships fraught with challenges and struggles, but always filled with love. The gentle strength they bring to this important role in their daughters' lives will speak to families for generations to come."
