Typewriters at Books by the Banks

by | Oct 11, 2014 | kids, WordPlay | 6 comments

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!

    Fantastic. What a great setting and occasion. Well done WordPlay. When I was a kid, typing on sheets in many different colours was the way to go.

    That looks like it's at the Duke Energy Center. And it looks fantastic.
