August Reading Invasion

Buffalo Friends:

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.

Broderick Park: The location for the July Reading Invasion!

Buffalo Friends:

One week from tonight–on Monday July 24th at 7pm–the 2nd Reading Invasion of the summer is taking place at Broderick Parkalong Buffalo’s west sideThe 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.

The June Invasion

Buffalo Friends:

The June 2017 Reading Invasion date and location has been announced. We are kicking things off on Tuesday June 13th at 7pm in Bidwell Parkway–on the Talking Leaves/Aroma side of the street.

The reading begins at 7pm. All are welcome. Just bring something to read, something to sit on, and a friend (though you of course can come by yourself)

If you haven’t been to an Invasion before, the idea is simple: Participants bring something to read and “invade” one of our many beautiful public spaces around Buffalo. This isn’t a book club; just a time to come together, to enjoy the act of reading, and to remind our fellow Buffalonians that reading is an essential element in the many of our lives.
