Letters About Literature is a national reading and writing program for children grades 4-12. Each fall, students are invited to write to an author of their choosing, living or dead, whose book they have found especially meaningful. Students may submit their letters to the Letters About Literature contest for a chance to win thousands of dollars in state and national prizes. State and national winners are announced in the spring.

The program is sponsored by the Montana Center for the Book at Humanities Montana and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.
