From Me to You Letter Writing Workshop
June 1 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am
June 1 is National PenPal Day! Join us at 11am for 30 minutes of writing. Write to a loved one, a long-lost friend, someone in the military or even your mail carrier.
“To write a letter is to send a message to the future; to speak of the present with an addressee who is not there, knowing nothing about how that person is (in what spirits, with whom) while we write and, above all, later: while reading over what we have written. Correspondence is the utopian form of conversation because it annihilates the present and turns the future into the only possible place for dialogue.”
― Ricardo Piglia, Respiración artificial
Stationary and pens will be provided along with envelopes.
If you choose to write to someone serving in our armed forces, the ManaTeam will take your letter(s) at the end of the event and handle getting them mailed to the appropriate organization.
Free Event. Donations are welcome and will be used to support literacy programming provided by Blue Manatee Literacy Project.
