Seattle Arts & Lectures (SAL) announces the addition of Tom Hanks to its 2017/18 Season line-up.

Tom Hanks will be interviewed about his first book, Uncommon Type: Some StoriesUncommon Type contains seventeen stories, each in some way involving a different typewriter (Hanks is an avid collector of vintage typewriters and owns over one hundred of them). The stories feature an immigrant arriving in New York City after his family and life have been torn apart by his country’s civil war; a man who bowls a perfect game (and then another, and another), becoming ESPN’s newest celebrity; an eccentric billionaire and his faithful executive assistant on the hunt for something larger in America; and the junket life of an actor. “I am thrilled by the narrative range on display in this collection, and by the humor and humanity Tom brings to his work,” said Alfred A. Knopf Editor in Chief Sonny Mehta. “This is an accomplished debut.”

Seattle Arts & Lectures’ 2017/18 Season is presented by the Seattle Times.
