As June approaches, you may be thinking about Father's Day (6/16), or graduation day, and perhaps how to say thanks to a favorite teacher. Allow us to propose a one-of-a-kind gift for those occasions: Let the poets of Typewriter Rodeo write your dad, the grad, or the teacher a poem, right on the spot, typed by hand on a vintage typewriter at Interabang Books. 

It works like this: You meet one of the two Typewriter Rodeo poets and provide a story, a phrase, or a notion -- then your poet creates your poem, handed over in a matter of minutes. Unique, memorable, and meaningful. (Watch the reaction when you present the poem as a gift.)

At our event, we will also have for sale TYPEWRITER RODEO: THE BOOK, which tells the real stories of people across the country, from Texas teachers to Maine lobstermen, through the original poems hand-typed for them on-the-spot. 

We encourage picking up a copy of TYPEWRITER RODEO: THE BOOK when you line up for your poem.* In particular, if you're giving your poem as a gift, you'll find there is no better way to show just how special their one-of-a-kind lines of verse are. 

Typewriter Rodeo, we salute you and celebrate your return to Interabang Books for a third visit. (The poets of Typewriter Rodeo were among our earliest special guests at the store, during our 2017 kickoff!)

To see the poets in action,watch this:

*Here's how the event will run: To manage the demand for a personalized poem, to join the line to meet and confer with a poet requires a sales receipt from Interabang from the day of the event. Buy any book, any gift item, any card, anything at all ... although we (and they) will love it if you buy their book TYPEWRITER RODEO. At times when there is no line, no proof of purchase is required.
