PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Two Rhode Island students have been named winners of a nationwide contest of writing letters to authors.

Hannah Catabia and T.J. Cienki were among six students who competed against more than 40-thousand other entrants. Each winner got a 500-dollar gift certificate from Target and attended the Library of Congress� fourth annual National Book Festival in Washington.

Catabia is a 17-year-old student at St. Mary Academy-Bay View in East Providence. She told the author of �All Quiet on the Western Front� how the book affected her acting skills.

Cienki is an eleven-year-old from East Greenwich. He described how the novel �Crispin: The Cross of Lead� led him to imagine that he was Crispin for one brief fall afternoon.
