On Sunday, August 3rd, starting at 4pm, the next Buffalo Reading Invasion is taking place in a new space: Wilkeson Pointe, on Buffalo’s Outer Harbor (article here). The Pointe is complete with rest rooms, is dog friendly, has plenty of room for everyone, and comes with an incredible view of Lake Erie.
This time around, we are partnering with the 21st Century Park on the Outer Harbor (http://21stcenturypark.org/), a local group dedicated to turning the outer harbor area into a public park. Please come hear from them about their plans for the rest of the Outer Harbor.
So please join us for an afternoon of reading along one of the great remaining undeveloped waterfronts in the United States. Please bring a friend, something to sit on, a picnic if you wish, and something to read.
It’s a little tricky to get to, but well worth the trip. See the map below for details.
The 2nd Reading Invasion of the summer has been set! On Tuesday July 15th, in partnership with Grassroots Gardens (here), we will be invading a new space: The Black Rock Heritage Garden–at the corner of Dearborn St. and Hamilton St. The event starts at 7pm. Please bring a book, a friend, and something to sit on, and join us for a lovely hour of reading in a wonderful Buffalo space.
The date & location of the first Reading Invasion has been official announced. On Monday June 9th*, we will be invading Bidwell Parkway, going east from Elmwood Ave (on the Talking Leaves/Aroma side, heading toward Buff Sem). Reading begins at 7pm and ends at 8pm.
*rain date: Monday June 16th: same time, same place.
If you’ve been to a Reading Invasion already, you know what to do.
If this is your first Invasion, then the rules are pretty simple: Come down to Bidwell around 7pm; bring a book and perhaps a chair or a blanket; join us for an hour of quiet reading and simple celebration. All are welcome, ESPECIALLY FAMILIES!
As per tradition, we’ve asked one of Buffalo’s talented young artists to produce this year’s official Buffalo Reading Invasion Bookmark. This year’s is made by local artist Anne Muntges (more here).
Check it out. First readers to arrive on June 9th will receive an official Reading Invasion bookmark.
Buffalo Reading Invasion is excited to announce our 3rd season! We are kicking things off on Monday June 9th at 7pm!
