  • Post category:Humanities

BEAVERTON, Ore. – On Saturday, Oct. 28 from 2-4 p.m., teens and adults are invited to Beaverton City Library (12375 SW 5th St) to learn more about National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Learn to write a novel in a month, get pep talks and support, and meet fellow writers. This program is free and open to the public; no registration required.

“This is the third year that Beaverton City Library will participate in NaNoWriMo, and we’re thrilled to support this nationwide campaign of writing,” said Abigail Elder, library director. “Many great novels were germinated during NaNoWriMo, and this month is a chance for writers throughout the community to get together and share their craft. The library is a natural place for this work of building community to happen.”

The theme for this year’s NaNoWriMo is superheroes. You’re the story’s superhero, and you can change the world. Stop by and take a superhero selfie and be entered into a door prize drawing. NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel. Find out more at
