Obscura Day 2015: The Art of Letter Writing

Enjoy exclusive access to the Letter Writers Alliance Club House in celebration of Obscura Day.

In this era of instantaneous communication, a handwritten letter is a rare and wondrous item. The Letter Writers Alliance is dedicated to preserving this art form - neither long lines, nor late deliveries, nor increasing postal rates will keep them from their mission.
 
Enjoy exclusive access to the Letter Writers Alliance Club House in celebration of Obscura Day. You'll see the inner sanctum of operations for the letter writing organization and have an opportunity to write letters and postcards using vintage typewriters.
 
Your ticket includes free supplies and typewriter time. Donovan, the Letter Writers Alliance typewriter expert, will be on hand to answer questions, troubleshoot cranky machines and make pithy comments. Come join us and type a letter or two! 
 
The studio address is 355 N. Laflin, Chicago, IL, 60607 and our studio is #206 on the Second Floor. We'll have a doorbell out. Here's our website: www.letterwriters.org
