On August 3, we have a Letter Writing Party sponsored by the awesome Letter Writers Alliance. They supply the typewriters and stationery, you supply the human touch. There’s NO COVER, and it will be superfun. In their words:
“In this era of instantaneous communication, a handwritten letter is a rare and wondrous item. The Letter Writers Alliance is dedicated to preserving this art form; neither long lines, nor late deliveries, nor increasing postal rates will keep us from our mission.
“As a member of the Letter Writers Alliance, you will carry on the glorious cultural tradition of letter writing. You will take advantage of every opportunity to send tangible correspondence. Prepare your pen and paper, moisten your tongue, and get ready to write more letters.”
My friend Bonnie, aka the organizer, informs me that she has scored a beauty of a machine for this event: “A 70′s era turquoise Smith Corona Eeel-let-tric typewriter. It is compact, it hums & purrs & bumps & dings. It’s going to ROCK.”
Hot fun in the summer, is what I say. Yes? Yes! It’s from 5:30-7 p.m. on Wednesday. See you there, one way or the other.
