Letters About Literature

Letters About Literature is a national reading/writing contest for students in grades 4-12, sponsored by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress in partnership with Target stores. To enter, readers write a personal letter to an author, explaining how his or her work changed their view of the world or themselves. The deadline for entries is December 8, 2006.

The Indiana Center for the Book, a program of the Indiana State Library and an affiliate of the Center for the Book at the Library of Congress, will provide cash awards to state winners and will sponsor an awards ceremony for the winners and semifinalists at the State Library in April 2007. Winners will also receive Target gift cards and advance to the national level competition in Washington, D.C.

So pick a book that changed you and write your letter today. Click here for the rules and the 2007 entry coupon.
