Rowhouse Reads

Just Buffalo Literary Center has teamed up with Rowhouse Bakery & Restaurant to offer a monthly series that is intended to get literary enthusiasts together to break bread and share their thoughts on a variety of literary subjects and issues.

For a $20 admission ($15 for members), participants will be treated to a limited selection of bread boards, pizza, coffee, tea, beer or wine, with a portion of proceeds benefitting Just Buffalo Literary Center. 

Per usual, it wouldn’t be a literary event without a reading. On Tuesday, May 1, the reading will be a collection of essays, “They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us” (Two Dollar Radio, 2017), written by Hanif Abdurraqib (July 21st’s Silo City Reading Series guest).

In an age of confusion, fear, and loss, Hanif Abdurraqib’s is a voice that matters. Whether he’s attending a Bruce Springsteen concert the day after visiting Michael Brown’s grave, or discussing public displays of affection at a Carly Rae Jepsen show, he writes with a poignancy and magnetism that resonates profoundly.

The moderator for the reading is Noah Falck, a leading literary advocate, author, and Education Director at Just Buffalo Literary Center. Falck also curates the phenomenal Silo City Reading Series which draws hundreds of people to listen to live readings from some of the hottest literary minds around.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
