Tom Hanks To Pen Book of Short Stories

He acts! He directs! And now he writes!

According to Vulture, Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks plans to write a book of short stories. This comes after he made his short story debut in The New Yorker.

The stories in the book will apparently be “loosely connected to photographs of typewriters from Hanks’ personal collection.”

Yes, Tom Hanks loves typewriters. In fact, he loves them so much, he collects them and helped create an iPad app that lets people type and print documents as if it’s on an old-fashioned typewriter. But a book full of stories about pictures of typewriters? Seems a little iffy to me. But hey, whatever floats your boat!
