In this irresistible collection, some of our most beloved and fascinating personalities write letters to their teenage selves and, in doing so, give a rare glimpse into who they are today.
Sixteen—it’s a funny age: we think we’re adults but are really still children. We think we know it all but lack life experience. If there was an age we could have used some sage words, it was then.
In Dear Me, more than sixty celebrities, writers, musicians, and actors deliver letters to their younger selves that give words of comfort, warning, humor, and advice. Often handwritten and shown alongside a photograph of the writer at around that age, these letters present intimate, moving, and witty insights into some of the figures who captivate us most, comprising a collection that readers will want to talk about and share with others. A portion of the proceeds received by the author from sales of the book will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.
