It’s National Write to a Friend Month

It’s National Write a Friend Month! We love handwritten correspondence. There’s nothing better than getting something meaningful in the mail.

Did you know? Author Sam Keith corresponded with his friend and naturalist icon, Dick Proenneke for 50 years and they generated more than 500 letters to each other? Their correspondence and friendship led to the book One Man’s Wilderness (which inspired the wildly popular PBS documentary, Alone in the Wilderness.) Let’s take their lead this month and reach out to a friend the old-fashioned way!
