We are also involved in an even more analog event that you may not have heard about–it’s called Publetters. It simply involves going to a pub, getting some nice paper, writing a letter and placing it in an envelope; then we hand you a stamp. Repeat as desired. Next one is Nov. 11th in Philadelphia at Paddy’s Pub 228 Race St. More details right here: www.publetters.com It’s sponsored by Trophy Bikes (we bring the stamps, pens and a “cheat sheet” of addresses for all sorts of people) and Casa Papel (They bring really nice paper and envelopes). It’s Free, of course; just bring words.

SO– Here’s the scoop: first one (Friday, 19 Sept.) is a big benefit to help make the 215 Lit Fest happen. So it costs money (a cool twenty), but you will have a good time in a bookstore like you have never seen.There will be typewriters, including an Olivetti Lettera 32 on auction, and other goodies.
Details RIGHT HERE.
Second one (Sat., 19 October) is part and parcel of the 215 Fest, which will bring a great array of literary and musical talent to Philadelphia. It’s outside, free and will feature amplified typewriter haiku… among other things! DETAILS SOON.
Sometimes beer is a muse, sometimes it’s just a beverage. On April 27th, find out at an evening of typing fueled by craft brews from the U.S., Italy and Germany–with typewriters from those same countries. We’ll also have a great beer-tasting, hosting the the Philadelphia Daily News’ Beer Reporter, Joe Sixpack. $15 covers the tasting and some tasty snacks–bring a working manual typewriter and it’s just $10. (we’ll provide nice stationery, stamped envelopes and a copy of “The Writer’s Sidekick” — a hard-boiled thesaurus cooked up behind prison walls!)
