Speaking of Schools

Summer Reading Programs and Letters About Literature


Monday - June 27, 2011


The best way to expand one's horizions while beating the summer heat is to read, read, read, and Reading is what this week's podcast is all about. We'll be joined on the show by Curtis Rogers, Director of Communications with the South Carolina State Library and he'll give us timely information about summer reading programs at community libraries throughout the state. We'll also meet two of the three state winners in the Letters About Literature competition, a national program in which over 1100 South Carolina fourth through twelfth graders participated. These students wrote a personal letter to an author, living or dead, from any genre--fiction, nonfiction, or poetry, contemporary or classic--explaining how that author's work changed the student's way of thinking about the world or themselves. Cash prizes were awarded to winning entries. Hear these two students read their award-winning letters and learn more about Letters About Literature for next year on this edition of Speaking of Schools!
