Letter writing--it's not a lost art. On Sunday, October 16th, Island Books is welcoming Letter Farmer Rachel Weil and her bright-red truck.
The Letter Farmer provides a convenient opportunity for people to enrich and deepen their connections through hand written letters. At a Letter Farmer event, you’ll choose from a curated selection of fine writing paper and greeting cards, select a writing instrument (maybe a glass dipping pen?), sit down with other letter writers and when you are ready, we’ll have stamps and a place to mail your post … all write here! We even have prompt cards to help you get started or to give you some inspiration to get the words flowing.
Sharing the narrative of our life through pen and paper as they meet and the nuances of our handwriting, paper selection and an envelope is addressed, stamped and mailed is priceless and timeless. Letters can be reread over and over, giving us the opportunity to have voices of our past speak again. Holding and touching something that someone who is either no longer with us or geographically far away is a way that we can feel connection.
