Genesee Reading Series

Now in its 36th year, the Genesee Reading Series is a smorgasbord for your literary palate.  On the second Tuesday of each month, listen to two authors read their work up close and personal in the intimate Performance Space upstairs. By the end of the year, you will have feasted on the work of 24 regional authors (some prominent, some emerging; writers of fiction, poetry, essay, creative nonfiction, memoir). Stay afterward and talk to the authors while eating cookies. $3 for members, $6 for the general public.

If you would like to make a request for an accommodation, please email us at accommodation@wab.org at least 10 days prior to the event.
