BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — People can learn how to replace or supplement their email with old-fashioned letters at an upcoming event in Bloomington.
The Monroe County Public Library will host a "letter writing social" on Saturday. Anyone wishing to learn the nearly lost art can stop in and learn how to write a letter by pen and paper or on a typewriter. Envelopes, paper and stamps will be provided.
Librarian Chris Hosler says letter writing is becoming rarer as the digital age advances. The Herald Times reports (http://bit.ly/1c0vZcs ) that many young people have never written a letter on paper and many older people have lost the habit as it's been replaced by emails, texting and Tweeting.
Clinton history teacher Jessica Johnson will teach the brief letter-writing course. No registration is required.
