Type-ins and more, June 23-24

There are several typewriter events happening on June 23 and 24:

1. QWERTY: The Second Annual Festival of Type and the Letter Arts will be held at the Greenville Drive-In on June 23-24th and features a return performance by the enigmatic rhythm and words ensemble, the Boston Typewriter Orchestra. The festival begins on World Typewriter Day Friday with a line-up including a special live performance by Brian Dewan and a 10th anniversary screening of Gary Hustwit’s documentary Helvetica. Boston Typewriter Orchestra takes the stage Saturday evening before screenings of Ink & Paper and Doug Nichol’s new documentary California Typewriter featuring Tom Hanks, John Mayer and Sam Shepard. Both evenings will host a gathering of typewriter poets, typewriter and letter art and a type-in hosted by Eric Molbach. Bring your typewriter or use one of the free typewriters provided on a first-come first-served basis. The Greenville Drive-In is located at 10700 Route 32 in Greenville NY 12083. More information here.

2. Type-in at Mission Pie in San Francisco, June 23, 3-7 pm.

3. Type-in at Oblation Papers in Portland, Oregon, June 24.

4. Type-in at Landmark Books in Traverse City, Michigan, June 24, 12-4 pm.

As for me, I'm going on vacation on the California coast.

Enjoy the beginning of summer!


  1. I can't miss World Typewriter Day this year! I'll be at Landmark Books with a few of my typewriters. It's great to be out of Florida and in a place that has type-ins.

    1. Oh! I confess I forgot that the 23rd (right?) is Typewriter Day. Of course, that could describe most of my days.

    2. it could be said that since every day is typewriter day now, it's hard to remember the official one (:
