Ryan Dvorak's letter to Robert Cormier

Description

Ryan Dvorak, an eighth-grade student in Alabama, wrote to Robert Cormier on 15 April 2000. In his letter, he shares that Cormier's books move him and were the cause of his becoming a more avid reader because of the emotional pull of the books' portrayal of real-life kinds of events. He asks thematic questions. One was "were you bullied as a child?" and ties this question to several characters across Cormier's novels. He explains that his teacher had dinner with Cormier at a conference, which is how he got a hold of his address. This respective and appreciative letter asks for information for an author's project.
