Letters of Note: From Website to Hard Cover Book

Letters of NoteIf you have been listening to Writers' Voices awhile, you probably know that co-host Caroline Kilbourn is single-handedly attempting to keep alive the lost art of letter-writing. You know, the kind written on paper (often by hand, with a pen), and actdually mailed?  with a stamp?  Well, perhaps not single-handedly, since the people she writes to often write back!

Shaun UsherAnd there's also Shaun Usher, whose belief in "the importance and unrivalled charm of old-fashioned correspondence" led him to start a website in 2009 called lettersofnote.com. There are currently over 900 "letters, postcards,telegrams, faxes and memos" featured on the site, written by people both famous and ordinary. From this intriguing archive, Usher selected more than 125 letters to feature in this beautifully designed anthology.  As one critic wrote, this books is "the literary equivalent of a box of chocolates - bite-sized and pure addictive pleasure."

Join us this week on Writers' Voices to learn how Usher finds the letters, how he chose which ones to include in the book, and the process of creating such a beautiful work of literary history.

The Pop and Alternative Rock band Aqua Timez that contributes to the soundtracks for Animes on a regular basis and Dragon Ash, a band active since 1996 that did not only make Hip Hop mainstream in Japan but also took it to another level.

The Visionist - Historical Fiction at its Finest

The VisionistMonica and Caroline welcomed debut novelist Rachel Urquhart to Writers' Voices July 17.  Her book, "The Visionist" was recently published by Little, Brown to much acclaim.  Set in 1842 during a time when young girls falling into trance states were revered as "Visionists", the story is told from multiple points of view and lays bare the struggles of the rural poor and the price paid to enjoy the relative prosperity of the Shaker communities where many sought refuge.

In this interview, Urquhart shares why the Shakers piqued her interest plus some of the details she uncovered in her research, the steps leading to her publishing success, and the influence of her grandfather, who won an Oscar for his screenplay for "Gone with the Wind" on her own writing.
