    Event Details

    Celebrate National Letter Writing Month by attending Address Me: Everything Needed to Send a Piece of You.

    We’ll provide dozens of stationery and postcard options, stamps, pens, a working typewriter, and tips on the art of letter writing. All you’ll need is the address of a loved one. A requested donation of $1 or more secures the stationery and stamp of your choice.

    For inspiration, there will be a small exhibit of vintage letters, including a priceless 1939 letter about a Dallas cocktail party.

    Pen pal matches will be available. In collaboration with Spread Joy 24-7, attendees can also write anonymous notes of encouragement that will be hidden around Dallas.

    Letter writing shouldn’t be a dying art. Expressive writing has been linked to stress reduction and an overall sense of well-being. Virginia Woolf called it “the humane art, which owes its origins to the love of friends” and Emily Dickinson likened it to immortality.

    RSVPs are requested on the Facebook event.
