NH middle school student wins national 'Letters About Literature' award

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — A New Hampshire middle school student has received a National Honor Award in the 2015 "Letters About Literature" competition on her personal letter to a favorite author, one of three recipients in her age group nationwide.

Oyster River Middle School student Emmy Goyette wrote to author Laurie Halse Anderson about her book "Speak," which chronicles a high school student's struggle to find her voice after a traumatic experience.

The program is coordinated in New Hampshire by the Center for the Book at the New Hampshire State Library.

Readers selected authors from any genre: fiction or nonfiction, contemporary or classic.

In New Hampshire, Zachary Cassidy, a fourth-grader at Infant Jesus School in Nashua, wrote a winning letter to Robert Lawson. Tenth-grader Joonho Jo at Philips Exeter Academy wrote to Chinua Achebe.
