Letters about Literature

Each year, the Center for the Book at the New Hampshire State Library participates in the Library of Congress competition, "Letters about Literature," in which children and teens write to the author (living or dead) of a favorite book, poem, or speech about "how that book affected their lives." The New Hampshire winners for 2017 were recently announced and the letter writers now go on to the national judging.


The three authors written to by this year's NH winners are Esther Earl who wrote This Star Won't Go Out: The Life and Words of Esther Grace Earl [YA B EAR, AB/CD B EAR], Jerry Spinelli, author of Stargirl [YA SPI, eBook, eAudio], and Gary Paulsen, writer of Harris and Me: A Summer Remembered [J PAU]. Read the books, and then read the letters and see if they've impacted you in the same way.
