Letters About Literature

State Capitol Building, Hartford

Each year, the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress holds a reading and writing contest known as Letters About Literature for students in grades 4-12.

Students are asked to read a book, poem, or speech and write a letter to that author (living or dead) about how the text affected them personally. Letters are judged on the state and national levels. Tens of thousands of students from across the country enter Letters About Literature each year.

Nine winners will be honored at the State Capitol in April.
