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!
