A few pics from June’s Invasion of Bidwell Parkway!
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.

With summer just around the corner, we are excited for yet another great season of Buffalo Reading Invasions!
As usual, we will be holding three Reading Invasions this summer: one in June, one in July, and a final Invasion in August.
Dates and locations will be coming soon!
Please join us for the final Reading Invasion of 2016! To end the season, we are partnering once again with Grassroots Gardens to explore some more hidden gems in Buffalo.
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.
Some pictures from the Hoyt Lake Reading Invasion:
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!
We’ve had some nice press coverage of the Reading Invasion this spring. Thanks to our local media for noticing!

Step Out Buffalo
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!
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.
Please join us on Monday August 31st for the final Reading Invasion of 2015. We’re visiting a new spot this month, though it may be one of the best: Symphony Circle. Please join us from 7pm – 8pm. Bring a book, something to sit on, and a friend to read with (or just bring yourself).
