by Jennifer Brozek

Dear Penpal, Belgium 1980 is loosely based on myself at ten years old while living in a 300-year old manor house in Belgium. I have written 24 "Penpal" letters from this fictionalized version of myself. When you pledge your support, you can choose the instant gratification of receiving all 24 letters in a single shipment or savor the anticipation of tangible, non-junk mail every two weeks. Included in your pledge is an exclusive invitation to join scheduled live group video calls where I will read the letters aloud and share personal anecdotes. It's a great opportunity to learn what was simply fun for the story and what really happened back then.

Dear Penpal, Belgium 1980 is perfect for fans of my previous works, those who miss receiving physical mail, parents of middle-grade children or educators, fellow military brats, seekers of cozy ghost stories, and anyone who has ever felt like a stranger in a foreign land. Join this adventure and bring the past to the present with every letter!
