Book Culture Revives the Art of Letter Writing

On Sunday, October 20th at 2 pm, Book Culture is embarking upon a letter writing renaissance in Morningside Heights. Participants are invited to take time out of their hectic lives, grab a cup of tea, and write a letter.

Simply look to the great epistolary romances and friendships of some of our most beloved writers. The exchanges between Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell show the development of poetic inception and a transcendent connection. Paul Auster and J. M. Coetzee offer opinions on the writing process, travel abroad, and even the family dinner table. These collections capture the interest of would be writers, poets, and chroniclers itching to participate in written culture.

The following Saturday morning, October 26th, at 11 am we will host a family-oriented version of this event, where children can write letters to whomever they wish: friends, grandparents, siblings, etc.

Book Culture will continue to provide a permanent space where visitors can craft and send letters. Materials and postage will always be provided.

For additional information, visit our website or blog.
