Friends: For July’s Reading Invasion, we will be meeting on Monday July 9th at 7pm in Columbus Park, located on Buffalo’s lower Westside, at the corner of Porter Avenue and Niagara Street (near D’Youville College and the Peace Bridge).
The park is divided into two sections. We will be meeting in the southwest section of the park, just behind the statue of Christopher Columbus. (The other section of the park contains the fantastic Niagara Branch Library, which will be open until 8 if you need a last minute book!)
Please see the map below for specifics on where we’ll be meeting. There is plenty of parking along Columbus Parkway, at the library, and around the park itself.
See you Monday at 7pm!
With the summer in full effect, please consider joining us next Monday for the July installment of the Buffalo Reading Invasion. This month, we are moving to the westside, to one of the great little hidden green spaces in Buffalo: Prospect Park (also known as Columbus Park). Located at the corner of Niagara Street and Porter Ave, Prospect Park is a perfect place to set up a chair, take in the lake breezes, and enjoy a book in the company of our great community of readers.
Date: Monday, July 9th.
Time: 7pm – 8pm.
Location. Prospect Park/Columbus Park. 730 Niagara Street (and Porter Ave).
What to do: Bring a friend; bring a book; and join us for an hour of reading in a hidden gem of a park on Buffalo’s lower west side.
This is just a last minute reminder that tomorrow night–Tuesday June 12th– at 7pm is the first Reading Invasion of the year. We’ll be gathering in Bidwell Pkwy along Elmwood Avenue, on the Cafe Aroma/Talking Leaves side of Elmwood. The weather looks perfect for tomorrow night!
For those who haven’t been to an Invasion before, please come with something to read and something to sit on, and find a place to set yourself down. Around 7pm, we start reading; around 8pm, we stop.
WE are excited to announce the opening of the 7th season of Buffalo Reading Invasions!
As we have the previous six seasons, the first Buffalo Reading Invasion of the summer will be taking place along Bidwell Parkway: on Tuesday June 12th, from 7 – 8pm.
More news to come, but please put it on the calendar and spread the word!
Due to the weather, we have rescheduled the August Reading Invasion at the Richardson Olmsted Campus for Tuesday, August 29th at 6:45.
Hope to see you there, Buffalo!
It’s August, and we are really excited to announced the final Reading Invasion of the summer of 2017, taking place on Tuesday August 22nd at 7pm. This time around, we are going to Invade one of the most exciting new spaces in Buffalo: on the south lawn of the Richardson Olmsted Campus!
For those of you who haven’t visited this recently renovated and reclaimed space–and as those who were at the incredible EnLIGHTen event can attest–the Richardson Olmsted Campus is already a gem in city, and we are thrilled to be partnering with them to make this night possible.
So please join on next Tuesday night for a special evening of reading, community, and one of Buffalo’s most beautiful public places.
