NCompass Live: Letters About Literature

Learn about Nebraska’s state reading and writing contest for youth, Letters About Literature, on next week’s FREE NCompass Live webinar, on Wednesday, November 4 at 10am CT.

Nebraska Letters About Literature is a state reading and writing competition that asks young people in grades 4 through 12 to write to an author (living or deceased) about how his or her book affected their lives. This session will provide helpful information for teachers and librarians interested in the competition. It will also cover the new submission process and be an excellent opportunity to ask questions about the entire competition process.

Presenters: Tessa Terry – Communications Coordinator, Nebraska Library Commission; Christine Walsh – Assistant Library Director, Kearney Public Library, and Nebraska Center for the Book President.
