ldquo;Florey writes with verve.rdquo;-Slate.com ldquo;Florey . . . rattles off crackling prose in a no-nonsense voice.rdquo;- The San Diego Union-Tribune Steeped in the Palmer Method of handwriting she learned in Catholic school, Kitty Burns Florey is a self-confessed ldquo;penmanship nutrdquo; who loves the act of taking pen to paper. So when she discovered that schools today forego handwriting drills in favor of teaching something called keyboarding , it gave her pause: ldquo;There is a widespread belief that, in a digital world, forming letters on paper with a pen is pointless and obsolete,rdquo; she says, ldquo;and anyone who thinks otherwise is right up there with folks who still have fallout shelters in their backyards.rdquo; Florey tackles the importance of writing by hand and its place in our increasingly electronic society in this fascinating exploration of the history of handwriting. Weaving together the evolution of writing implements and scripts, pen collecting societies, the golden age of American penmanship, the growth in popularity of handwriting analysis, and the pockets of aficionados who still prefer scribbling on paper to tapping on keys, she poses the question: Is writing by hand really no longer necessary in todayrsquo;s busy world? Kitty Burns Florey is the author of Sister Bernadettersquo;s Barking Dog: The Quirky History and Lost Art of Diagramming Sentences . A veteran copy editor, she has also written nine novels and many short stories and essays. She lives in central Connecticut with her husband, Ron Savage.
