I really enjoyed reading "Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry", "Let the Circle be Unbroken", and "The Road to Memphis". I really would like to know what happens to everyone afterwards, especially during the Civil Rights Movement. I was also bothered by how Jeremey Simms' fate is vague, but it is implied that he dies in the war. I really would like him to survive. I have made up some stories about what happens to him and the Logans, but like most of my stories they involve time travel and crossovers with other books. Since those elements do not fit into your continuity, I would love to hear the official version.

I'm an English teacher in Colombia, my 7th graders just finished your book "The Land", they made amazing jobs to show how much they liked your book, do you have any e mail address or a land one to send you pictures?
they also wrote some letters for you!!!

I am the Technology Facilitator for Hesston schools in Hesston, Kansas. We are currently reading your book, "Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry" in our 7th Grade Language Arts class. We are studying the Civil Rights Movement and are looking for experts to Skype with. Would you be willing to visit with our class or have anyone I could contact? We have Skyped with authors before and it is truly an experience our children will never forget. Please contact me by email, we would love to hear from you!

I had a group of excelling readers in the 6th grade read/discuss/create ROLL OF THUNDER. I have two letters they would LOVE to send you with their thoughts/comments/observations about the book (hint: they LOVED it!). If you could direct us as to where to mail the letters, I know these two students would be very happily satisfied and excited!

Ms. Taylor it is an honor to tell you that "Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry" has been my favorite novel since I read it in the 4th grade in 1989! I am now an author myself and it is partly because of influences such as yourself! I want to send you a free, autographed copy of my book as a small token of gratitude for being such a great inspiration to me in my life-long dream of becoming a published author.
If you desire you may also visit my blog, where I have shared the first five chapters of my new novel, "Reach" with my subscribers. I'd be honored to give you the site! Again, thanks and I hope one day you will read something of mine and love it as much as I love your work.

I loved these three books.
1. Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry.
2. Let the Circle Be Unbroken.
3. The Road to Memphis
I really wish you could answer this question to me.
" How did Stacey react when Cassie really told him what happened at the gas station." In the book the road to Memphis please email me it. Thank-you.

I've really enjoyed these books and found them powerful, especially as someone who can't really relate to these experiences but wants to understand American history. I've read somewhere that a final book in the series, a sequel to The Road to Memphis, is being written, and I really hope this is true as I have been wanting to know what happens to the Logans since I first began reading these books as a child.

Dear ms Taylor I love all of your books but my abosulte fav is The Land. I have a question is there a movie for The Land if not any interest in making one. I really hope there is one because seeing the scenes and characters acculltaly act it out helps people understand some things better and it would be really interesting

You are an inspirational person. I have read all of your books except for The Land (which I am working on now). All of them touched my heart in an unforgettable way. While reading The Land, i got to the part of where Mitchell dies. I read that and cried my eyes out!! The Land, along with The Road to Memphis are my favorites. I hope Ms.Taylor you will read what I have to say. Again, your books have changed the way I look at things. I wish one day I could meet you and tell you in person how much I appreciate your awesome work. Also, I'm sad that there are no more books in the series about the Logan family.
Thank you Ms.Taylor for reading my thoughts to you.
