Next Letter in the Mail: Peter Witte


We’re getting ready to send out our next Letter in the Mail from visual artist and writer Peter Witte! Peter sends us a very special illustrated letter about what it means to be a “keeper,” and the anxiety that accompanies attempts to shed some of his possessions. He also asks whether you too are a keeper, or are you a shredder? Subscribe by November 30 to enjoy this beautiful letter!

Beginning next Friday, November 25, with our Black Friday sale, you’ll be able to purchase 6-month gift subscriptions to Letters in the Mail in our store for your favorite writers and readers through the holiday season!
