Typewriters at Books by the Banks


Books by the Banks is a festival in downtown Cincinnati featuring lots of authors signing books, talks on publishing, and other fun events. I got to see my old friend, and very successful SF writer, John Scalzi.



WordPlay had a room where kids were invited to write flash fiction, create blackout poetry using old magazines, and — of course — try their hands at typewriting. It's fair to say that the typewriters were the main attraction. 


There was a steady stream of visitors who peeked in, attracted by the clacking sound, and wanted to give the machines a try.


Typewriters, books, and people — a great combination!
