More stories and events

Here are some more examples of media attention that The Typewriter Revolution has been getting, for readers who may be interested. The marketing phase is in full swing, and it's exciting but also quite new to me. (Books about philosophy don't generally get this treatment.) I wish I had time to type some intelligent thoughts for this blog, but at the moment I am consumed with book promotion—not to mention trying to be a scholar, teacher, chair, husband, father, magazine editor, and companion to our two new semi-Siamese cats. Good problems to have, all in all!

The Typewriter Revolution is Underway (Amy Brownlee, Cincinnati Magazine)

Viva la Typewriter! (Ron Charles, Washington Post)

I was also interviewed by Marc Bernier at WNDB in Daytona Beach, Florida, which was a pleasant experience. The audio is no longer online.

On Nov. 11 at 7 pm there will be a signing and type-in at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Cincinnati.

Then I'll be traveling to Miami and appearing at the Miami Book Fair on Nov. 21 at 11 am, together with Marvin Sackner, who recently published The Art of Typewriting with his late wife, Ruth.

Whew.

  1. Again, kudos for your work, the book is indeed a scholarly work, I'm sad that I just finished it, but I won't give away the ending!

  2. Great you and your book are getting all the attention.

    I think I'll see if I can talk Mrs. M into a trip to Miami.
