Thomas Edison, Ike Turner, and Me?

A brief history of the Edison Typewriter and how I procured my personal Edison from a Turner.

Amanda Olivia & Glen Crookston

New to Typewriters? Picking the Best One for You!

Amanda and Glen will guide new hobbyists in selecting the best typewriter to meet their needs and expectations. This session will be focused on users over collectors and features humor through their fun, yet educational, banter.

Bio: Amanda is a Texas native and a lifelong resident. She is a writer and artist. When she's not herding cats and wrangling typewriters, she's studying violin and growing herbs in the garden.

Glen is a Colorado Native and has lived in Texas for seven years (this time). He is a writer and student of history. When he's not stepping on cats and accidently digging up herbs that he thought were weeds, he's scouring the floor of the workroom for the little bits that fell off the typewriter or firearm he's attempting to repair.
