The children's tutoring and writing center WordPlay Cincy
just celebrated its first anniversary with a party.
Its store, The Urban Legend Institute, is looking great and is full of good stuff.
One of these unique hand-decorated typewriters, donated by Greg Fudacz of
The Antikey Chop, found a new owner at the anniversary party today;
I convinced her to take the plunge by telling her how much her friends would
enjoy getting typed letters. I bought one of the Vintage Typewriters calendars
myself; they feature machines from Kasbah Mod.
Some more typewriters are waiting for new owners.
Party attendees passed by some of the stable of working writing machines.
WordPlay recently got some great scientific posters -- literally old school.
Some recent poetry projects:
I love this old department store display case.
This Little Free Library was auctioned off.
The Urban Legend Institute got crowded as the evening went on.
There are lots of books for kids and some great reading for adults too,
Here's the woman who makes it all possible, director Libby Hunter.
The event attracted lots of good feelings, donations, and new volunteers.
In a raffle I won some Apple Bourbon Pecan Schnecken from Queen City Cookies.
The #1 ingredient is butter. I'd better get to the gym!
PS: Here's a recent story about WordPlay. I recently had the
pleasure of restoring the L.C. Smith Super-Speed that belonged
to the reporter's grandfather.
