Letters about Literature

My readng friends need to enter The Center for the Book's Letters about Literature reading and writing program. Go to the program link to print a copy of the entry coupon. The deadline is December 4, 2004.
To enter, readers write a personal letter to an author, living or dead, from any genre-- fiction or nonfiction, contemporary or classic, explaining how that author's work changed the student's way of thinking about the world or themselves. There are three competition levels: Level I for children in grades 4 through 6; Level II for grades 7 and 8, and Level III, grades 9 - 12. Winners receive cash awards at the national and state levels.

You can choose any kind of book, a picture book, a novel, an informational book...I know some amazing and thoughtful readers. I hope they will put their thoughts on paper and enter.
