While in Ann Arbor in late June, I stopped at Literati Bookstore to browse, where a flyer caught my eye. I had seen other type-ins publicized around the state and country, but nowhere near me.  I was both excited and confused.  What do you do at a type-in?  After enlisting the advice of others who …
