This weekend there are several fun events going on around the Triangle. Also, during the month of April I encourage you to swing by Quail Ridge Books in North Hills to check out The Typewriter Project. You can stop by Monday-Sunday, 9am-7:30pm through April 30th to join in a citywide linguistic exchange. The typewriter booth has a vintage typewriter which allows every keystroke to be collected, stored, and posted online for users to read, share, and comment upon.

The Typewriter Project’s mission is to investigate, document, and preserve the poetic subconscious of the city while providing a fun and interactive means for the public to engage with the written word. So check it out sometime while your out exploring and share your thoughts! Speaking of exploring, here are the rest of my picks for the weekend:

Friday – April 7th
