SCLLN is excited to announce the winners and runners-up for the 2016 Writer to Writer Challenge!  We had a great response—85 entries—and the quality of the letters was amazing!  We are so proud of all of the learners who wrote letters.  Every letter was a beautiful expression of the learners’ thoughts and feelings.

Please join other writers, tutors, coordinators and their guests, as well as our State Librarian Greg Lucas, at a wonderful brunch to be held Saturday, February 25, at 10:30 a.m. at the Radisson Hotel in Newport Beach.
