COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Local love submitted by manz on July 12, 2018, 4:04pm A really cool little book. If you're familiar with Literati and are intrigued by the typewriter -- this book shares the story on this bit of community love.

So sweet and lovingly produced submitted by lexinylander on August 10, 2018, 6:02pm “I lock the door. I turn out the lights. I check every corner, stairwell, closet, and bathroom. I say goodnight to the books.”

My favorites:

I wrote a letter to Santa so he doesn’t think we only talk to him when we want something.

cool air, long walk. warm hand.

Life insists that we endure

I am always wondering,
“Will there be lesbians?”
More often than not,
The answer is a disappointing, “No.”

there are so many birds

One for the Locals submitted by dntanzer on August 21, 2018, 1:14pm This is a cute little book published by one of the owner's of Literati, a bookstore in downtown Ann Arbor. It has a few pages where Mike, the owner, writes about Literati, Ann Arbor, and some of the people he's met here. In between those stories, he shares a mix of quotes left on the public typewriter in Literati's basement and relevant photos. It's cute and definitely nostalgic for Ann Arbor locals! Also a very quick read.

A great part of Ann Arbor submitted by kassafrass on July 13, 2019, 9:42am I've only lived here for a little while, but this book still captured a lot of what Ann Arbor means for me. It has the lovely voice of the people who live here. I'll probably take a copy with me when I move someday as a reminder.

Local Ann Arbor book submitted by kerstinrh on July 24, 2019, 12:51pm This book is a fun quick read of things people wrote on a public type writer that sat out in the Literati bookstore in Ann Arbor. Interesting to see what people have to say. Easy and fun to read peoples thoughts.
