The FAM Newsletter
You know those letters you get at Christmas that tell you what your friends and relatives and possibly a neighbor you don't remember sharing a street with have all been up to? What if those letters were from your favorite writers and filled with wonderful things to read?
That's what the FAM Newsletter is: your source for all the wonderful work you may have missed or just want to read again. The author's previous Split Lip work can be found by clicking on their name, and their good news is also hyperlinked.
And there is so much good news to share!
