Please join us on Monday August 29th from 6:30pm – 7:30pm at the Shakespeare Garden on the corner of Porter Avenue and Jersey (433 Porter), directly in front of the Karpeles Manuscript Library (on Facebook) and/or in the Life Memorial Park, across the street at the corner of Normal and Porter.

Please bring a book, something sit on, a picnic or dinner if you wish, and join us for a quiet hour of reading in yet another wonderful Buffalo spot.

July Reading Invasion Details!


The next Reading Invasion of 2016 is going to take place on Monday July 11th at one of our favorite spots: along the southern edge of Hoyt Lake (the Marcy Casino side).

We’ll converge on Hoyt Lake around 7pm. Please brink a blanket or chair, something to read, and even a picnic. From 7pm – 8pm, we’ll read around the edge of one of the more beautiful spots in the Olmsted system.

Hope to see you there!

Tonight’s Invasion is a go!


It’s a bit cooler than in past evenings, but the light rain has stopped, the ground is fine (but you’ll want a blanket or chair), the sun might poke its head out later, and we are going to be meeting tonight at 7pm for a lovely hour of quiet reading in Bidwell Parkway.
Hope to see you then!

The New Season Begins!

It is nearly summer again in Buffalo, and that means it’s time to grab a book, bring some friends, and enjoy our city’s amazing public spaces.

Once again, we are kicking off the season in one of our favorite reading spots: Bidwell Parkway. Please join us from 7 – 8pm on Tuesday June 7th for an hour of quiet, communal, reading.

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!
