It's very cool to read Ms. Nordstrom's editorial letters to icons like Sendak and E.B. White. I felt like I got a small glimpse into an era when writers worked with one editor for decades and wrote on typewriters and sent carbon copies. Yet, it's reassuring to know there are certain themes that never change. Pacing, character development, and telling a story that feels *true* are still just as important as they always were.
