Inglemoor sophomore Cindy Kuang is the Letters About Literature state champion for grades 9-12. Kuang’s letter to author Jerry Spinelle about his book “Smiles to Go” is being sent to compete at the national level sponsored by the Center for the Book at the Library of Congress. The results of the national judging will be released in May.

Cindy, along with state champions Peter Baumer (grades 4-6), Owen Bernstein (grades 7-8), and all state runner-up and honorable mention recipients, will be honored at an awards ceremony in the Columbian Room at the state Capitol at 1:30 p.m. on May 9.

Letters About Literature encourages young readers to read a book and write a letter to the author about how the book changed their view of the world or themselves. Letters About Literature is sponsored by the Washington State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State, as part of Washington Reads and by The Center for the Book at the Library of Congress.
