Thanks for a wonderful series!
Q. It has been years since I’ve written to you, but I still consider myself an avid Alice fan! I started reading the series when I was twelve, and I’m now twenty-one. I’m always sure to keep an Alice book or two with me throughout college as I’ve moved from dorm to dorm and apartment to apartment, because they’re fail-proof when I need a pick-me-up. In all honesty, I’m not sure how I would have survived my teenage years without Alice!
This summer I will be interning at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, and as I’ve been searching for housing in the area (no luck yet), I become so excited whenever I see mention of Silver Springs. I’m pretty sure I’ll have to spend a Saturday there this summer, exploring Wheaton Plaza and the other places mentioned in the books, as dorky as that may be! 🙂 And, of course, I’m looking forward to reading Intensely Alice.
I hope all is well, and thank you for creating such a wonderful series that so many people can relate to. I’m already anxious to have my niece start reading the books when she’s old enough!
I love hearing that college girls are still reading the Alice books. Because you’ve known Alice since she was twelve, I can imagine that you want to know how she’s dealing with life as she grows older. What a wonderful internship you will have this summer! There’s so much to see in Washington that I’ll be surprised if you get to Wheaton Plaza, but don’t worry. Alice will keep you up to date.
