According MassLive Actor Tom Hanks has sent a vintage typewriter to a Massachusetts family. “The de Peyster family of Wellesley received the typewriter after Nick de Peyster sent a letter to the actor. The family watched “California Typewriter”, a documentary about writers, artists and others who continue to use typewriters.” The documentary featured Mr. Hanks, among others. 

Hanks not only sent the de Peyster family one of his vintage typewriters, he autographed it and included a typed letter that listed his somewhat tongue-in-cheek “Eleven Reasons To Use A Typewriter.” 

Of course, You’ll need to read the post to see Mr. Hanks’ list.
