Review: Writing to pen pals builds letter writing skills, or so this 1940s class is told. So Tate chooses to write to Hank Williams because her family always listens to his music on the radio. Family love, dealing with tragedy, and surprising insights from a young girl emerge through her letters along with vivid glimpses into the pop culture, prejudices, and other vintage details of the day.
