Buffalo Bookstore Tour Sat. Feb. 21st 3pm

Posted on Updated on

Recent DLIS graduate Jacinta Penkszyk has arranged to give a tour of
two famed Buffalo bookstores–Talking Leaves and Rust Belt books.
Each of these books is situated in a historic neighborhood, near famed
restaurants as the Towne Restaurant and Nietzsche’s Bar.

The tour begins on Saturday, February 21st at Talking Leaves. A store
owner will give a guided tour of the place and there will be some time
for browsing.

Then head on over to Rust Belt books in the famed Allentown
neighborhood. Another tour will be held and then optional dinner at
the Towne restuarant. Many local bars, such as Nietzsche’s and Allen
St Hardware are close to Rust Belt. A musical act will be performing
at Nietzsche’s, a great way to get in on the local music scene.

This tour is great for those new to Buffalo and others who want to
catch places they’ve heard about but never been to.

It is being promoted by LIS GSA but not funded. Please contact with any questions.

–Ellie Jones, Direktor of Fun
