Letters About Literature
Letters About Literature is a Library of Congress national reading and writing promotion program made possible by Dollar General Literacy Foundation, with additional support from gifts to the Library’s Center for the Book. More than 1 million young readers have written a personal letter to an author, explaining how the work changed their view of the world or of themselves. Readers can select authors from any genre ‒ fiction or non-fiction, contemporary or historical. The program is in partnership with affiliate Centers for the Book, state libraries and other organizations.
Veterans History Project
The Veterans History Project collects and preserves the extraordinary first-person accounts of America’s war veterans. Through a nationwide network of partners and volunteers the Project collects interviews, letters, photographs, journals, and memoirs from veterans of every war since World War I, assembling a genuine treasure trove of individual feelings and recollections. The Veterans History Project was recognized as one of the "Top 50" public initiatives during the 2005 Innovations in American Government Awards, a program of Harvard University.
AARP is the Founding Corporate Sponsor of the Veterans History Project.
