From me to me: A letter to my 161/2-year-old self is an engaging compilation of letters written by South African men and women. The contributors range from newsmakers to ordinary people and everyone else in between. Their letters will offer insight into who they were when they were younger, just 161/2 years old, to who they are now. With the amazing 20/20 vision offered by hindsight, the contributors invite the reader to share in their joys, their triumphs, their trials, their regrets, their major and minor learning curves, their matters of the heart and the preoccupations of their minds – key points that have shaped who they are as adults and what they represent today. The market for this book is wide. It is for the young adult struggling to find footing in the world and for the adult looking back on the time when they weren’t certain of much in life. It is in essence a hand to hold, comfort and hope. The book is compiled and edited by Samantha Page. Samantha Page is currently the editor of O, The Oprah Magazine, and it is under her leadership that the magazine celebrated its 10th anniversary in April 2012.
