I’ve decided to wait to write to Dr. Goodwin because I feel that I need to read a bit more of her books (Thanks for the advice, Mom!) but am sending the letter to Edith B. Gelles without rewriting five times like I did for the letter to David McCullough and like I will for the letter to Dr. Goodwin.

LATER: I sent the letter to Edith B. Gelles. It’s not my best, but I needed to get a letter sent. I guess I’ll be reading more of No Ordinary Time for the rest of tonight.
