Another week, another look into events in Boulder you probably weren’t aware of.  Let’s not waste any time and dig right in and see what you might be up to in the coming days.

1.These two authors will be speaking about, and doing signings, for their new books on the 10th at our very own Boulder Bookstore at 7:30 pm.  “The Evening Road”, by Laird Hunt, is the story of two women on the run through Jim Crow-era Indiana.  The two travel a violence and hate filled America in search of a new life and escape their pasts.  “Make yourself Happy” by Eleni Sikelianos is offering an answer for one of the greatest question humans have.  How to live.  This unique book has both text and images sprawled out across the pages in a fresh take on mimicking ideas.  “Humanity, happiness, and the survival of the biosphere spin each section forward, species are wiped out, yet the poem endures.”  Vouchers are $5, and good for $5 off the author’s book.  Or, vouchers can also be used on any purchase made that day.

2.I think it’s to say that many of us living in Boulder like to stay active, perhaps even competitive in some regards.  Those fortunate enough to have a partner who also enjoys some friendly competition should certainly look into the 4th annual Tuff Love Competition on the 11th.  This all day crossfit event is designed for teams of one male and one female, not necessarily a couple, hosted at CrossFit Sanitas.  For $75 per person, which includes a free T-shirt, you will get a killer workout and the chance to win some prizes!  Check out CrossFit Sanitas’ site for details on all the exercises and divisions.

3.The Boulder Public Library is hosting this all ages event showcasing the Boulder Choral on the 12th starting at 3:15pm.  Part of their concert series, this free event will be an afternoon of live choral music by local performers.  Hosted in the Library’s Canyon Theater, and with no reservations or tickets required, everyone can come enjoy these beautiful sounds.

Jesse graduated from CU Boulder in 2014 with an English degree in Creative Writing. He has been writing independently ever since a high school teacher inspired him with a simple assignment to write whatever he wanted after struggling to follow a writing prompt. Since then, Jesse has been writing every day and continues to work on getting his writing published. It was that one spark that sent Jesse on a path not just toward pursuing his own writing, but to go into education in the hopes of awakening a similar passion in others. To keep his creative juices flowing, and keep a healthy balance, he also enjoys exercise of almost every kind and keeping a healthy diet. In his free time he enjoys seeking out new and interesting stories of all kinds, watching foreign media, and sometimes just relaxing and looking out the window for a while. Since coming to Boulder at the age of 3, Jesse has found no shortage of inspiration here.
