Letters to an American Lady is a collection of over 100 letters that C.S. Lewis wrote to an American woman between 1950 until he died in 1963.

Roger Verhulst sent two copies of the book to J.R.R. Tolkien, who expressed both in a letter to the former and to Clyde S. Kilby that he found the book "deeply interesting".[1][2]
