Joys of Letter Writing

Letter writing is making a comeback.  Thank goodness, though for me, letter writing has always been a fun priority.   Currently, I have two nieces in college in Illinois and try write to each of them a couple of times per week and a new year's resolution is to write to a 95 year old friend who lives in an assisted living facility near where I work.

I stumbled onto the link below via author Simon Garfield's Twitter feed.   Massachusetts librarian Jenny Arch writes a great blog and a recent post highlighted Garfield's new book To the Letter: a Celebration of the Lost Art of Letter Writing.  She also writes about how she created a special booklet using Lewis Carroll's "Eight or Nine Wise Words on Letter-Writing" (1890).  Here's a link:  What a great idea!
