We received our first (snail mail) submission for LAL2020 and so we are off!  This is year 20 for LAL in Massachusetts.  Looking forward to hearing from young readers about how and why books matter in their lives!

Hello all,


There will be a meeting via Zoom on July 16th  from 1:00 PM EST to 2:00 PM EST for those of us who are interested in discussing continuing the Letters About Literature program in our respective states.


The meeting will be hosted by Iowa (the Zoom part) and the link for the meeting will be sent via this listserv from Nancy Medema sometime next week.


Thank you!
