Connecting with Students Through Literature

Apr 21, 2016

Have you ever loved a book so much you wished you could write a letter to the author? That’s the foundation of our annual letter-writing contest for middle and high school students, Letters About Literature. A national Library of Congress program that is facilitated in Maryland by the Maryland Humanities Council, Letters About Literature promotes reading and writing skills and inspires creativity in its many participants.  Kimberly Dyar, teacher librarian at Rising Sun High School in Cecil County and recipient of last year’s Christine D. Sarbanes Teacher of the Year award, tells us how this program allowed her to connect with one of her students.
