Letters about Literature

Texas students read their winning letters.

Letters about Literature is an annual reading/writing contest for 4 – 12 graders directed by the Library of Congress. Each year, tens of thousands of students from across the country enter the contest, writing letters to the authors of their favorite books that explain what the book means to them and how it has impacted their lives. In Texas, the program  is sponsored by the Texas Center for the Book at the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. Texas winners receive $100 and a trip to the TLA Annual Conference to share their letters at the Letters about Literature event.

As of October 2023, the Letters About Literature Texas program is on pause. Letters are not being accepted at this time, and there will not be a Letters About Literature event at the 2024 TLA Annual Conference. Visit the TSLAC Letters about Literature webpage for updates on the status of the program in 2024.
