The book is a concise guide on writing letters to a pen pal. DeGroot writes, “I’ve been pen palling for 53 years. I do it because I love meeting new people, making new friends, helping others and writing letters.”

Having a pen pal is a way to do many things at one time: meet new friends from different countries and cultures, gain experience working with words and even practice handwriting and penmanship.

In “Dear Friend: The Power of Pen Pals and Journaling”(published by iUniverse), Cheri DeGroot delves into to her long-time hobby of exchanging letters with pen pals, describing the benefits she has gleaned from the practice as well as offering tips for readers interested in starting up pen pal friendships of their own.

An excerpt from “Dear Friend”:

“Pen palling also made me feel special in a way that is hard to explain. I got a feeling of love and attention. Sharing my life with my friends gave me a different outlook. I discovered there are so many ways of expressing thoughts and ideas, helping others see my views, and they shared their views with me. It’s a special bond, and the best way to understand it is to experience it.”
