Robert Cormier's Response to Louise DeSalvo
Robert Cormier's warm response in the form of a two-page typed letter to Louise DeSalvo, dated August 9, 1998, gives her the permission she sought from him in her original letter of July 28, 1998. He responds with admiration to the scholarship exhibited by her in the chapter she sent him. In this letter, Cormier refers to his and his wife Connie's June-July-August summer home: a house on a "pond" about a half hour from Leominster. He describes the idyllic sounds of the place and Connie's delight in it.
