Letters About Literature is a national reading promotion program of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, presented in partnership with Target and the Arizona Center for the Book at the Arizona State Library. The contest invites young readers to write a personal letter to an author, reflecting on how that author’s work somehow changed their view of the world or themselves. State and national prizes are awarded. The national winners will receive a $500 Target Gift Card, plus each will secure a $10,000 LAL Reading Promotion Grant in his/her name for a community or school library so that others can experience personal relationships with authors and the stories they tell. Please encourage students in grades 4-12 to enter using the attached entry form. Details are at http://www.lettersaboutliterature.org/how_to_enter.
