The American Writers Museum has a new exhibit called Tools of the Trade. It’s a look back at the importance of the typewriter to the author, poet, journalist and playwright. Museum President Carey Cranston says the connection between writers and their typewriters is a special bond. You will get a first-hand look at the typewriters that, when some famous names put their fingers to the keyboard, masterpieces were created. And, for the budding young writer who has never seen a typewriter before, Cranston says kids’ reactions are priceless. The exhibit is now open to the public and runs through next year.
