Letter from Robert Cormier to Liz 10 June 1995

From Cormier’s letter, he addressed Liz as a student who had read and connected with the protagonist in The Chocolate War (1974). In her letter to him, apparently, she had touched upon the “futility of censorship”. Cormier praised her thoughtfulness and encouraged her to keep her reading life alive.
