Lane is an institution in Boulder, an agora, a meeting place, a
poetry center, venerable and popular among young and old, a melting
pot of cultures, an intellectual asset to the Boulder community,
a place for political and emotional discussion, a classic coffee
house in the best Euro-American tradition, a place to go and read
newspapers, muse, write, relax, and meditate."
Lane's 'So, You're a Poet' reading series has maintained continuity,
balance and humor as a sounding board for private consciousness,
outside the homogenization of media."

anthology draws on those many moons of Monday nights and by the
commitment and talent of younger writers and editors in the Naropa
community. It is a ranging and engaging compilation. As such it
represents a refreshing ongoing counter-poetics, outside the mainstreams
of academia and lyrical 'mafia' officialdom."
