Dear Sally,                                                                                                                                                11-5-13

 

I am incredibly excited to be meeting you on Thursday, I’m not even sure where to start.

 

For the past month and a half I’ve been reading through your papers in the University of Oregon archives and I’m fascinated by your work for civil rights. Reading letters you wrote to the different communities you’ve been a part of, all calling for a more just, inclusive world, I am blown away. I have great respect for who you are, and how you live, particularly because I see you standing up not only for your personal interests, but also on behalf of any group you notice facing discrimination. If you’re willing to share, I’d love to hear more about those experiences.

 

I’d also love to know more about The Wanderground. How did the stories go from zine publications to a full novel? Is the setting based off of your time in northern California? Some of the descriptions sound so much like our beloved northwest.

 

Above all, I’d like to thank you. Thank you for taking the time to meet with me. Thank you fro donating your letters to the Archive-they have been so helpful in doing  & learning to do research. And thank you for the difference you’ve made with your life- you are an inspiration & a light.

 

Sincerely,

 

Aimee Fritsch
