One envelope at a time
It starts like a game, like hide-and-seek or a treasure hunt: letters, scribbled on paper napkins, sneakily placed at the bottom of bags. Where will the next one be? For author Hannah Brencher, letter writing is a family tradition. Notes are slipped along with lunches, bright turquoise envelopes regularly tossed in the mail. But after a family death, Hannah’s letters with her mom take on a new tone and a new meaning. And the act of letter writing itself changes forever.
