Two winners in the Library’s Letters About Literature essay contest will read their letters to the authors they wrote to. Letters About Literature is a national reading and writing program that asks young people in grades 4 through 12 to write to an author (living or deceased) about how his or her book affected their lives. More than 50,000 young readers from across the country participated in this year’s Letters About Literature initiative, a reading promotion program of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.
