We love letters...
Letters Aloud was founded in 2013 by Paul Morgan Stetler as a way to connect a live audience to famous (and infamous) historical figures through their intimate correspondence.
We’re also intensely interested in exposing modern audiences to a rapidly disappearing form of communication — the written letter.
The eloquence, pathos, and individual experience of history captured in letters is intriguing, instructive, and often hilarious.
