A Midsummer Reading Invasion (for July)

Friends: Please join us on Monday July 27th at 7pm for the 2nd Reading Invasion of 2015. This time around, we’re going to be gathering in a new Reading Invasion location: the Pelion Community Garden (Facebook page here), located on Best St directly across from City Honors.

It’s a smaller space than Bidwell, but we think you will love it. The Pelion Community Garden is one of those small Buffalo gems that everyone should know about. So please join us with something good to read, a blanket or chair, and anyone (including children) you’d like to read with.

Hope to see you there!

Tonight’s Reading Invasion postponed until NEXT MONDAY, JUNE 15th

Hello Buffalo friends:

With the weather looking rather soggy and grey and generally unpleasant, we’ve decided to postpone the Reading Invasion until next Monday, June 15th.

Same time (7pm); same place (Bidwell); same rules (bring a book; read).

Hope to see you then!
