Emily Wilson chose the winner of her new book of Elizabeth Lawrence's letters. As she put it:
Although I loved all the posts,
learned from them, and have returned to them often, I recommend as the
winner E. Barrow's because she said something I actually hadn't thought about
that explictly–that we can "become Elizabeth Lawrence," or we can
become something like her, or live our lives more like hers. I hoped that
would be the case with readers, as it has been with me, and this post said it
Congrats to our winner, Elizabeth Barrow. Enjoy the book!
