Time Travel with Typewriters

Saturday November 9, 2013: 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

This event is intended for adults, teens and youth (grade 4 and up)

Sure, you know how to use a computer keyboard or text on your phone, but have you ever written anything using an actual typewriter?

Meghan Forbes, editor of the "harlequin creature" literary journal, will bring her personal collection of typewriters for you to try. She will guide writers and typists through imagining what sort of "Paperbook" profile or story you might have created 100 years ago, in the year 1913. All materials, including simple illustration tools, will be provided.
