To Whom It May Concern

Welcome to the To Whom It May Concern Reader's Guide, created by Mr. Hoad-Reddick's Grade 11 English students at St. John's-Kilmarnock School. We would like to thank Priscila Uppal for being our Writer-in-Residence at the school this year and for sharing our journey through her wonderful novel. It was such a delight to have Priscila on hand to discuss various aspects of the book and to share the story of its creation, and the resonances it has in her life. We hope you enjoy this Reader's Guide.

We welcome your comments, corrections and kudos.
