Chippewa Valley Book Festival: Carolyn Porter "Marcel's Letters"

Tuesday, October 22 at 7 pm

During the depths of World War II, Frenchman Marcel Heuzé mailed letters to his wife and three young daughters from a labor camp in Berlin. His handwritten letters home carried tender words of love along with testimony about day-to-day survival inside a labor camp. More than half a century later, type designer Carolyn Porter found a bundle of his letters in an antique shop. As Porter began to transform the beautiful, looping cursive into a modern computer font, she became obsessed with finding answers to her questions: Who was Marcel? Why were his precious letters for sale halfway around the world? And most importantly: Did Marcel survive? Discover what goes into the design of a font, learn about a little-known aspect of WWII—the forced labor of ordinary French civilians—and be inspired to pursue your own passion projects.

CAROLYN PORTER is an award-winning graphic designer and type designer based in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. Books will be available for purchase at this event. Please join us for an autographing session following the presentation.
