Why should anyone collect stamps?
As collectors and APS members know, everyone has a unique story of how they started.
The movie "Freaks and Errors: A Rare Collection" follows a group of collectors, looking to find common threads amongst those who cherish stamps.
The "Summer of Stamps" festival will hold a free preview of the movie on Saturday, July 25, 2020.
Recently, Writer/Director Mark Cwiakala was interviewed by APS Development Assistant Erin Seamans. Watch this video before catching the movie!
