LaserWriter II Book Launch
Before there was Poster House, there was Tekserve, the neighborhood computer store that fixed a million tech issues. It was a beloved New York institution, and its ghosts still haunt the museum’s art-filled halls.
Tonight, join Tamara Shopsin as she launches LaserWriter II, a book that brings Tekserve back to life. The event will feature humorist John Hodgman, the world’s shortest reading by Shopsin, and at least one sound effect—not to mention a free poster* with book purchase.
