Additional Information


Letter writing shouldn’t be a dying art. Expressive writing has been linked to stress reduction and an overall sense of well-being. Virginia Woolf called it “the humane art, which owes its origins to the love of friends” and Emily Dickinson likened it to immortality.

For National Letter Writing Month, visit The Wild Detectives bookstore with the whole family to attend the special event Address Me: Everything Needed to Send a Piece of You. The bookstore will provide hundreds of stationery and postcard options, stamps, pens, working typewriters, and tips on the art of letter writing. All you’ll need is the address of a loved one.

Activities include:
- An exhibit of vintage letters, including correspondences of local significance and an epistolary-inspired reading list, curated by the Dallas Public Library
- Artists and calligraphers from Kaligrafos to hand-address your envelopes
- A special selection of fountain pens from the Dallas Pen Club
