Robert Cormier's letter to Mrs. Anti
In this one-page typed letter, Robert Cormier addresses the teacher of a class of student who has sent him their projects. He wrote back to them, and as a cover, included this cover letter to their teacher, Mrs. Anti. Generously, he offers to conduct a telephone conference with the class (and he provided Mrs. Anti with his home phone number) as his schedule did not permit him to accept their invitation to visit. As is customary, Cormier conveys deep satisfaction that he was instrumental in vitalizing these youths' reading lives, and he conveys the greatest respect to Mrs. Anti for creating curricular space in which students could meaningfully engage with literature.
