Wow!!!! This is very exciting news, Donovan and Kathy. I will see you there - how fun.


SO EXCITED! Do we need to RSVP? Cost? Can't wait!!!

Kathy Zadrozny

You do not need to RSVP and it is completely FREE to attend, write, and use the typewriters.


What fun. Marked my calendar & will be keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be able to make it into the city that day.


This sounds like big fun and its on my calendar! I send letters via the mail all the time. The poor post office is in peril and we need to rescue it!

What kind of typewriters will be there? I'm obsessed with IBM Selectric 2's. I want a refurbished one, badly.

I write with purple ink pens, exclusively. Thanks bunches!


Come to LA!


What a lovely way to spend and afternoon, putting pen to paper, and stamp to envelope. Your gathering provided the impetus for me to send off long overdue letters of condolence and reconnection to correspondents from my past and friends in my present. Thanks so much for making this happen in such a pleasant and organic way. Also thanks to Rare Device for hosting!
