The University of Iowa Lecture Committee has proposed an exciting prospect: bringing J. K. Rowling to the U of I campus in the spring of 2016. They have an open call for letters for their letter-writing campaign, and have invited our school community—students, staff, parents—to join in by writing personal letters to Rowling, inviting, urging her to come to Iowa City.
They have suggested that the letters include two elements:
• Thanks. How her work has been enjoyed & affected your life
• Invitation. Beg… plead! Invite her to lovely Iowa in 2016.
We are encouraging all Hornets (students, staff, and parents) to participate and help provide letters.
The U of I committee would like to send all letters as a consolidated bundle. The letters should be on paper—either handwritten or printed out—then collected and sent to your school librarian by Thursday, March 12. Or mailed in directly to:
