Although I’m not longer a student, fall never fails to hold a promise of fresh ideas and new learning. As students, from kindergarteners to grad students, return to classrooms, libraries, and cafeterias, I can’t help but feel a serious pang of jealousy. I miss school.
Perpetual studentship: a distant, difficult dream with a price tag in the thousands.
Or so you’d think.
Buffalo has a strong literary undercurrent. Just as important contemporary literary figures live and work among us layfolk today (check that noun usage off on my writing bucket list), our city has a wonderful history of welcoming authors, poets, filmmakers, and artists.
This fall, StepOut will help you keep your scholarly interests alive with the “Buffalo’s Leaves and Lit” (yay for cheesy, clickbait alliterations!) weekly guide. We’ll alert you to the high-minded going-ons around Buffalo – dinner and drink recommendations included (you know us).
Larkin Square Local Author Celebration
Thursday, Sept. 15 @5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Larkin Square, Buffalo
Scholarly Dinner/Drinks: Vera
Craft cocktails and Italian cuisine @ 220 Lexington Ave., Buffalo
Open 5:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m. on Thursdays
After you’ve been well-sated with poetry and such, Vera on Lexington will be open for all your cocktail needs – you should have quite a bit to discuss over drinks like the Culture Club (couldn’t help myself with that name).
