For the third year, Mrs. Granger’s freshman English class is writing and sending letters to the Juliet Club in Verona, Italy.
Thousands of letters from around the globe are mailed in every year, addressed to the fictitious Juliet Capulet from Shakespeare’s renowned play “Romeo and Juliet.” The volunteers who run the club, known as “Juliet’s Secretaries,” take care to answer each one. The secretaries can read and write in several languages so anyone is able to write in.
“They get handwritten letters back on official Letterhead,” English teacher Ashley Granger said. “Most kids start getting them within a couple of months, the rest will get them back next school year.”
