Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks Book Release Party!
Join us along with The Paper Seahorse on Tuesday, October 17th, as we celebrate a wonderful book of 17 short stories that all feature a unique thread--the typewriter! There will be books for sale, the writing bar (type on machines from the 20’s to the 70’s) and a cocktail reception and reading from 5 – 7pm.
Unfortunately, the author will not be present for a book signing.
About the book: A collection of seventeen wonderful short stories showing that two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks is as talented a writer as he is an actor.
A gentle Eastern European immigrant arrives in New York City after his family and his life have been torn apart by his country's civil war. A man who loves to bowl rolls a perfect game--and then another and then another and then many more in a row until he winds up ESPN's newest celebrity, and he must decide if the combination of perfection and celebrity has ruined the thing he loves. An eccentric billionaire and his faithful executive assistant venture into America looking for acquisitions and discover a down and out motel, romance, and a bit of real life. These are just some of the tales Tom Hanks tells in this first collection of his short stories. They are surprising, intelligent, heartwarming, and, for the millions and millions of Tom Hanks fans, an absolute must-have.
