Link to February 28 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article, "Jerry and me: A decade of correspondence with J. D. Salinger."
Excerpt: In 1966, when I was a girl of 15 growing up in Central Pennsylvania, I wrote a letter to J.D. "Jerry" Salinger. It began a correspondence and friendship between us that spanned in all about 10 years. In 1970, my junior year in college, I visited him for about five days at his home in New Hampshire.
