Greetings partners and friends,


With deepest appreciation, I thank you for participating in this year’s National Book Festival, Pavilion of the States, State Centers meeting and reception….. along with your year round commitment to Letters About Literature.


Your presence makes a huge a difference in our ability to advance the causes of libraries, literacy, reading promotion and so much more. Thank you for what you do every day and for your commitment to others.

We will look to schedule a call in October to debrief from this weekend and to create our agenda for the next few months. In particular, look for notes out about the meeting from Friday soon.


All the very best,
