Hear ye! Hear ye! On the 28th of April there will be a very special letter writing social at the Read/Write Library from 2PM-5PM. It's extra special because this is Atlas Obscura Day! What's Atlas Obscura Day, you ask? And what's Atlas Obscura? Well, Atlas Obscura is a "compendium of the world's wonders, curiousities and esoterica" and Atlas Obscura Day is when we all try to get out and explore them.
This social will be a bit different than usual. For starters, we're going to ask you to R.S.V.P. on the official Atlas Obscura Day site. A ticket will be $5; some of which will go to support Atlas Obscura and some of which will get you an Atlas Obscura Day L.W.A. membership which comes with a badge, limited edition membership card, and special artistamp.
Current members are welcome to R.S.V.P. if they wish to receive the limited edition card and artistamp. We've limited the number of tickets to 20 people because Read/Write is only so big. If you don't R.S.V.P., you can still come. We're not gonna turn you away though we may have to seat people on the floor to write letters. You have to R.S.V.P. if you want the special edition goodies though.
As always, we'll have stationery and envelopes as well as typewriters for you to use. We'll bring in scraps and rubber stamps for mail art and have vintage postage for sale. Bring your address book and favorite pen. Everyone is welcome, but children do need to be accompained by an adult. I'm really excited about participating in Atlas Obscura Day and I hope to see you there!
