Letters about Literature National Contest

Have you ever read a book that changed you or your outlook on life? Do you ever wish that you could tell the author of that book how much they influenced you? The Library of Michigan has just announced that it is taking submissions for the statewide and national Letters about Literature contest for grades 4 through 12. Readers should write a letter to a favorite author explaining how a book changed them.

The Library of Michigan will be accepting submissions until December 10 for grades 9-12, and January 10 for grades 4-8.

To submit your letter, you will need to attach a Literature Entry Coupon, found here on the Library of Michigan website.
