Thanks and Have Fun Running the Country

A few days after the election, students from 826 centers around the country were asked to provide advice and guidance to their new President. The result was a stack of hilarious, heartfelt, and occasionally downright practical letters loaded with advice. You can buy a copy of the book at the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co. UPDATE: Powell’s Books in Portland has asked some of the young authors to check in with Obama and send updates to their letters via the Powell’s Books Blog.
