Words have power. To hurt. To build. To destroy. To uplift. Some people remember only the unkind things said to them. Others focus on the positive. But across the centuries, words have connected us—in songs, in poetry, and above all, through letters. Before text messages, famous authors, presidents, and ordinary friends exchanged letters. Waited weeks or even months for a reply. Letters tell us who they were. Others fell in love over letters, as my parents did.
Join us as we explore movies, books, and histories… told through letters. New articles go live every Saturday through the summer. We hope the following articles will inspire you to write someone you love.
The links go live on the assigned dates. Enjoy!
