Alex made his entrance as a published author through the back door, when he invited fans of his music to send him letters that he would turn into songs. The response inspired a highly emotive collection of songs and letters, and as a thank you to the letter-senders, Alex wove his own story through the lyrics and letters to give the senders a book along with an album about their letters.

For The Sender by Alex Woodard
“Standing there shuffling the memories on the counter, I remember what I sometimes forget. Forgiveness. Compassion. Gratitude. Three roads leading to being here now, where we can give the next moment a chance to exist without prejudice, so we can love what’s here, while it’s still here: each other, ourselves, our freedom." - excerpt from FOR THE SENDER: Love Letters from Vietnam”
