Fall Type-In and the Boston Typewriter Orchestra

I am excited to be partnering with the Burlington Book Festival to hold my fall Type-In.  We will be at the Fletcher Free Library in beautiful Burlington, Vermont from noon until 3pm on September 18th.  There will be lots of typewriters to explore and you are encouraged to bring your own to show as well.

I am doubly excited to have connected the festival with the Boston Typewriter Orchestra who will be performing on the evening of September 17th along with a guest appearance of public radio's Martha Barnette co-host of  "A Way With Words."  Follow this link for tickets and more information.

Typing in NYC

This post comes from my dorm room at Columbia University Teacher's College where six of my principal colleagues and I are taking an exciting and exhausting seminar on teaching reading.  I brought my Skyriter along to type on the road and have been using it for reading reflections.  We have a chance to get out each evening and tonight we went on the Highline in NYC.  I left the Skyriter back at the dorm.  As portable as it is, I was not about to carry it around the city on a muggy summer evening!  As luck would have it we ran into Bill Keys, The Poem Guy who typed a poem for us on the importance of reading.  Thanks to my friend Mike Berry for making this video and the rest of my colleagues for their time and encouragement!
