One week from tonight–on Monday July 24th at 7pm–the 2nd Reading Invasion of the summer is taking place at Broderick Park, along Buffalo’s west side. The Park, located at the foot of West Ferry St. and set beside the Niagara River, is a relatively unknown gem in our park system–and a perfect place for a night of reading, gathering, and community.
We’ll be meeting at the southern end of the Park from 7pm until 8pm. There are picnic benches and a pavilion and a large grassy area along the “historic walk” to gather and throw down some blankets and chairs.
Broderick Park is a historic place for its role in the Underground Railroad, and just recently got an $11 million dollar upgrade. And just last week, the Broderick Park Station–a new eatery–opened up. It will be open until 7pm on Monday, so come early and grab some food. It’s also just a beautiful spot, snug against the Niagara River, a stone’s throw from Canada, and just under the shadow of the Peace Bridge.
Please mark your calendars, tell your friends, and plan to join fellow Buffalonians for a lovely night of reading and gathering.
