Beat Generation Ground Zero

If Neal Cassady hadn't met Hal Chase at the old Denver Public Library on Colfax Avenue (today it's the McNichols Building), the entire Beat Generation wouldn't have happened. Hal later introduced Neal to Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg while he was attending Columbia University. 

We hereby recognize Capitol Hill Books as the official Ground Zero Bookstore for the Beats worldwide, as it is a very short walk from the spot where it all went down. Check out their amazing section of Beat literature!
