Write to Connect gives 10 lucky classes the chance to send questions to, and receive responses from, an author!

Here’s how it works:

1

Read the book with your class.

2

If you are randomly chosen, each student in your class writes a letter to the author.

3

Mail your letters to us in a prepaid envelope.

4

Once the author receives their letters, they’ll answer a selection of student questions in a video.
