JCBA's Famous Letterwriting Socials

First Friday of Each Month
New Expanded Hours! 2 to 6 PM in JCBA's Book Arts Gallery
$10 donation

Thousands of letters have been sent out to friends near and far thanks to Real Mail Fridays, JCBA's famous monthly letter writing socials. It's all based on the magic that emanates from your mailbox when you find a real handwritten letter in there. Real Mail Fridays are about connecting with friends and family through the simple act of connecting pen to paper.

We supply everything you need: papers, letterpress printed cards, pens and inks, rubber stamps and other art supplies. We always have commemorative stamps for you and, of course, cookies and tea and coffee (we like our cookies here at JCBA!). Feel free to bring your own stuff, too. The suggested $10 donation grants you access to everything. Come enjoy a fun afternoon and bring a friend... and make some new friends while you're at it.

We've expanded Real Mail Friday hours! We gather now from 2 to 6 PM each First Friday of the month (except for university holidays). Come when you can and leave when you must.

The Jaffe Center for Book Arts is located on the third floor east of Florida Atlantic University's Wimberly Library. From I-95 or the Florida Turnpike, exit Glades Road, east. The FAU campus is located just east of I-95. If you enter the campus at FAU's main entrance (the one furthest west on Glades Road... and the first one you get to approaching from I-95 or the turnpike), you will enter on West University Drive. Continue straight on West University Drive to the traffic light at its intersection with Volusia Street. Turn right onto Volusia Street. You will see a parking garage on Volusia Street, and the Wimberly Library is the next building east of the parking garage.

Visitor Parking is available at the metered spaces in the library parking lot; look for the spaces that have numbers posted on signs at the head of the parking space. The meter system accepts payment with cash or credit card at the rate of $2 per hour.
