Letters About Literature
In the annual national contest, the students
write to an author to explain just how the author's work has changed his or her life or view of the world. Taera Kang in grade 6 earned State Recognition with a letter to Yangsook as one of the ten best in her level. She wrote, "I no longer want to be like everybody else, to fit in with the norm. I am my own individual, and proud of it... Without The Name Jar, I would not be the girl I am today."
