“Thank you for the book of damn fine poetry… Yee Haw!” (Tom Hanks).
From Texas teachers to Maine lobstermen, Typewriter Rodeo tells the real stories of people across the country — through original poems hand-typed for them on-the-spot.
Published by Andrews McMeel Universal, it’s an inspiring round-up of humanity, filled with poetic portraits of love and longing, whimsy and wonder, healing and hope.
It’s also a much-needed reminder that we all still need genuine connection — to simply be seen and understood. And that we’re all in this beautifully messy thing together.
