Several Big Piney students were among those in the state honored in the 2007 Letters About Literature Contest. Letters About Literature encourages students to read, be inspired and write back to their favorite authors.
Approximately 56,000 young readers across the country participated in this year’s Letters About Literature competition, a reading promotion program of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, presented in partnership with Target Stores.
