Letters of Note:

In March of 1961, nine years after the publication of Charlotte’s Web, author E. B. White received a letter from a young fan named Cathy Durham who wanted to know when, if ever, his next children’s book would see the light of day.

Little did Cathy know that White hadn’t written another book yet because his fan mail post Charlotte’s Web had been taking up most of his time and creative energy. Click through for the letter White wrote to Cathy as well as the letter he sent to Cathy’s librarian.
