RICHMOND â€“ Though their minds were on the senior prom and graduation, Shelley Kennyâ€™s Advanced Placement Literature Class took some time recently to talk about the honors they collectively received in the recent national Letters About Literature contest.
The nationwide annual contest is open to students in grades four through twelve and is sponsored in Rhode Island by The Center For The Book, part of the Council For The Humanities.
â€śThe students have to write a letter to an author and make a personal connection between one of the authorâ€™s stories and their own lifeâ€ť, Kenny explained. The authors can be living or deceased as the letters are actually sent to the judges who determine the winning entries.
