Author Carolyn Porter will discuss her newly released book "Marcel's Letters: A Font and the Search for One Man's Fate" at the Stillwater Public Library on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm. 

Seeking inspiration for a new font design in an antique store in small-town Stillwater, Minnesota, graphic designer Carolyn Porter stumbled across some old letters and was immediately drawn to the beautifully expressive pen-and-ink handwriting. She could not read the letters—they were in French—but she noticed they had been signed by a man named Marcel and mailed from Berlin to France during the middle of World War II.

Marcel’s Letters is the incredible story of Carolyn’s search to find answers to the mystery of one man’s fate, answers that would come from Germany, France, and the United States. Simultaneously, she would continue to work on what would become the acclaimed P22 Marcel Script font, immortalizing the man and his letters that waited years to be reunited with his family.
