Two Phoenix type-ins on December 8

This is a landmark in the rise of typewriter culture: enough interest that there can be two (no doubt successful) type-ins in the same metropolitan area at the same time!

Typewriter event in Auburn, CA, Oct. 27

This event at the Auburn State Theater, 985 Lincoln Way in Auburn (near Sacramento) is the brainchild of Gary Moffat, who welcomes questions at gm50wpm@gmail.com.

Starting at 4 pm, there will be an exhibit of over 50 vintage typewriters. You can try many of them, and possibly win one by participating in a typing test and a 10-word story contest. A few will be for sale. At 6 pm, Richard Polt will be interviewed by Gary and local TV news anchor Edie Lambert. The typosphere's favorite cult film, California Typewriter, follows at 7. Tickets can be purchased here for $25.

 Watch this brief video for Gary Moffat's personal invitation to the event:

Here is the Facebook page for the event.
