    Letters About Literature is a national reading-writing contest sponsored by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. Students are asked to write to a favorite author—past or present—describing how that author’s work changed the reader’s view of the world. Readers respond to the book they’ve read by exploring the personal relationship between themselves, the author and the book’s characters or themes. Readers may select authors, living or dead, from any genre—fiction or nonfiction, contemporary or classic. A wide variety of books have inspired students whose letters were selected as New Hampshire semi-finalists in recent years.
