Letters about Literature
Letters about Literature is a national reading-writing contest that invites readers in grades 4 through 12 to write letters to authors of books that have changed their lives. This program gives students the opportunity to reflect deeply on a book. As readers, they come to understand how literature is more than assignment, but also a life changing experience. You can find contest information, curriculum materials and more at www.michigan.gov/mcfb or www.lettersaboutliterature.org. Winners receive cash prizes for themselves and their community or school library. The deadline for submissions is December 10, 2010. Winners will be announced in spring 2011.
