Dear Mr. King,
I am a grade 10 student at Sussex Regional High School. We are seeking you. It is a big deal for our little dairy town. There has already been a write up in our local newspaper.
Now, I am sure you are asking why come to little old Sussex? It is a waste of time. I am sure a big shot like you has better things to do. Well sir, if this is what is going through your mind, then you sir are cold hearted and closed minded.
You see sir, here in Sussex we would love to have you make a presentation in our newly renovated theatre. You have a lot to offer eager students like myself. When you come to Sussex, you will not only be considered one of the great people who have visited here, like the Queen herself, but you will be able to inspire and teach the young minds of many eager high school students.
We know it can be an expense to you; however, New Brunswick is not that far from Maine at all. We also understand that you could be uncomfortable, but the great thing about the staff and students of SRHS is we will make you feel as comfortable as we possibly can.
Another thing Mr. King, when you come to Sussex there is plenty of opportunity for new novel settings. Some of these opportunities include our covered bridges and our potash mine.
I hope you take everything I said into deep consideration and get on up here to our dairy town. When you think about it sir, it is a win-win situation. You get to inspire students and have a possible best-selling novel and us as students have the opportunity to learn from a literature icon.
