NCompass Live: Letters About Literature: Read. Be Inspired. Write Back. - Recorded Online Session 


Letters About Literature is a Library of Congress national reading and writing competition that asks young people in grades 4 through 12 to write to an author (living or deceased) about how his or her book affected their lives. This session will provide helpful information and resources for teachers and librarians interested in the competition. It will also cover the new online submission process and be an excellent opportunity to ask questions about the entire competition process.

Presenters: Tessa Terry - Communications Coordinator, Nebraska Library Commission; Laureen Riedesel - Director, Beatrice Public Library, and Nebraska Letters About Literature Coordinator; Christine Walsh - Assistant Library Director, Kearney Public Library, and Nebraska Center for the Book President.
