Hoyt Reading Lounge- Level 1

National Novel Writing Month is upon us, so join us on Friday November 15th from 10AM-6PM. There will be a take over of the Hoyt Reading Lounge for a day long Write-In. Bring your laptops, your pens and paper; we'll be plugging away at that word count all day long in the distractingly scenic "Hemicycle" in the Burnham-Hoyt Room where the windows look out onto Civic Center Park. The view is great for inspiration or simply procrastination.

We'll be doing sprints throughout the day, so come on down and have some fun writing with us!

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Founded in 1859 and situated at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Boulder's small size harbors a big-city feel, and its rich past hides plenty of hair-raising lore. A home in the Newlands is said to be haunted by a previous owner who was displeased with remodeling done on his longtime abode, while a small Victorian on Pearl Street has been plagued by strange events for over a century. Guests at one hotel might be surprised by the number of mysteries wrapped around the building, and local spirits have a standing reservation at a popular restaurant that was once a mortuary.
