The Write House II

Adding to obsession with the written world of the White House is this scrap: a letter from the President to author Yann Martel about his book, The Life of Pi, which he read with his daughter. It is published courtesy of a favorite site, Letters of Note. While I have conflicted feelings about the administration sometimes, we should be proud that our president thinks to jot off such a note to an author: "It is a lovely book — an elegant proof of God, and the power of storytelling."
