Title

Robert Cormier's letter to Jason Campbell

Description

This May 7, 2000, one-page letter by Robert Cormier to Jason Campbell at the American School in Dubai, appears to address questions about where he gets his ideas for writing. Referenced are Tunes for Bears to Dance To and Tenderness. For Tunes, Cormier says he worried about publicly displayed sculptures and at the same time, Holocaust deniers were in the news. The ideas merged in his head, driven by his own strong emotions. Regarding Tenderness, he talked about a now-changed law that released juvenile offenders at 18 despite the severity of their crimes. He reiterated that emotions "send me to the typewriter."
