Address Me

Event Details

Back from COVID hiatus, celebrate National Letter Writing Month by attending Address Me: Everything Needed to Send a Piece of You.

We’ll provide hundreds of stationery and postcard options, stamps, pens, working typewriters, and tips on the art of letter writing. All you’ll need is the address of a loved one.

This is a free event

Activities also include: an exhibit of vintage letters, including correspondences of local significance and an epistolary-inspired reading list, curated by the Dallas Public Library; artists and calligraphers from Kaligrafos to hand-address your envelopes; and a special selection of fountain pens from the Dallas Pen Club.

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.
