Real letters. Real people. Read aloud.

There are a lot of ways to stay in touch in our extraordinary Covid-19 era. Back in the day, it was all about the letter. In the spirit of staying connected and giving back, Letters Aloud is starting a new Letter of the Week video series. For 10 weeks beginning May 5th, 2020, enjoy some of our favorite letters, read by some of our favorite readers. It’s free!

Check them out under WATCH, on the right side of this page. 

The formula is simple. Each show brings together letters to and from the famous, the infamous, and all us regular folk—making history come to life in surprising, inspiring, and hilarious ways.
