Valentine's Day is just around the corner! To kick off the season of love, StoryCorps is releasing a brand-new animated short: "To R.P. Salazar, with Love." It's a love story that started with a simple typo!

In January 2007, Rachel P. Salazar and Ruben P. Salazar were living 9,000 miles apart and completely unaware of each other's existence. But when an email meant for Rachel accidentally went to Ruben, it wasn't long before an ordinary mistake began to look like an extraordinary stroke of luck.

This romantic tale comes from StoryCorps' new book, All There Is: Love Stories from StoryCorps. On sale February 2nd! It features 30 of the greatest love stories from across the country. Entertainment Weekly says "All There Is is a Valentine's Day gift more meaningful than any box of chocolates."
