David McCullough's Typewriter Bookend

If you couldn’t be among the estimated 200,000 readers who flocked to the National Book Festival in Washington, D.C., last month, you can still enjoy some of the speakers’ presentations, including the one by David McCullough. The Library of Congress, presenter of the Book Festival, has compiled a podcast.

Want to know David McCullough’s secret to writing books that win Pulitzer Prizes and end up on the New York Times bestseller lists? A used typewriter! That’s how he’s composed all his books, including his newest, “The Greater Journey.” At Levenger, we‘ve immortalized the McCullough typewriter by miniaturizing it into this bookend—which the author loves.
