White urges student readers to enter ‘Letters About Literature’
Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White is urging students in grades 4 through 12 to enter the 2014 “Letters About Literature” contest, a national reading and writing competition sponsored by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress and the Illinois Center for the Book.
“Letters About Literature” invites students to read a book of their choice and write a letter to the author about how the book changed their life or view of the world. Student can enter on their own or through their schools, libraries or other youth organizations.
“Every year thousands of students in Illinois enjoy participating in this inspiring competition,” White said. “Illinois has had more entries than any other state for six years in a row. Anyone who has read these letters can see how literature inspires and touches the lives of our young people. I encourage all our students to take part in ‘Letters About Literature,’ and I hope their participation leads to a lifetime of reading.”
