Food writer Devra First files this over on the Dishing blog:

The Associated Press reports that Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will publish the letters of Julia Child in December. "As Always, Julia" features more than 200 letters written by the chef and her agent Avis DeVoto. They run from 1952 through 1966, the span of time during which Child penned "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" and became host of the "The French Chef." If you've seen "Julie & Julia," you know Child and DeVoto were also dear friends. Their letters are sure to make interesting reading, offering new insight into the lives and characters of both women.
