Reading Invasion Scores a Knock Out and Prepares for Round Two

Thanks to incredible participation from people who want to help promote the benefits of reading, Buffalo’s first 2014 Reading Invasion was a smashing success. The event took place in Bidwell Parkway and was attended by over 300 readers, making the event the most successful invasion to date. Organizers are thrilled with the response, and equally happy with the age range that is attending the communal outdoor readings.

For its next showing, the Reading Invasion is teaming up with the organization Grassroots Gardens, to show off one of its stellar assets – The Black Rock Heritage Garden at the corner of Dearborn Street and Hamilton Street (see map).

The reading event will take pace on Tuesday July 15th at 7pm. The garden can be seen by clicking here. You can learn more about Black Rock by visiting the “Believe in Black Rock” Facebook page. Also check out the Buffalo Reading Invasion website.

“The community that has created the garden is opening up the space to us and we couldn’t be more excited! So please bring a book, a friend, and something to sit on, and join us for an hour of reading in a wonderful Buffalo space.” – Buffalo Reading Invasion
