The Letter Q Giveaway


If you could write a letter to your younger self, what would it say? What do you wish you had known back then that you know now? What encouragement and advice would you tell teen you? Those are the questions posed to sixty-four award winning authors and illustrators writing to their younger selves. It's touching, emotional and beautiful. I mean just the book trailer brings warm fuzzies to you, doesn't it? Doesn't it make you want to go back and hug your younger self?



Would you like to win a copy? Thanks to Scholastic, I have two copies of The Letter Q: Queer Writers's Notes to Their Younger Selves to giveaway!

About the book: In this anthology, sixty-four award-winning authors and illustrators such as Michael Cunningham, Amy Bloom, Jacqueline, Woodson, Terrence McNally, Gregory Maguire, David Levithan, and Armistead Maupin, make imaginative journeys into their pasts, telling their younger selves what they would have liked to know then about their lives as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender people. Through stories, in pictures, with bracing honesty, these are words of love, messages of understanding, reasons to hold on for the better future ahead. They will tell you things about your favorite authors that you never knew before. And they will tell you about yourself.
