Letters to Juliet!

I recently read the book Letters to Juliet by Lise and Ceil Friedman. It was about a group of volunteers in Verona, Italy who respond to thousands of letters each year sent there to the most famous herione of William Shakeseare's play's Romeo and Juliet. People have been sending letters there to Julet asking for advice usually about there love lives among other things. It was an informative book about the history of the secretaries to Juliet and about the play and Verona itself. The sample letters in the book made me both cry and laugh. The book came with a piece of stationary paper and an envelope. I wrote my own letter and intend to send it shortly. The webstite to get contact info about the Club Di Guilietta- The Juliet Club and learn more about them is well worth a read is the book and definatly recommend writing to them.
