Words on Walls Summer Kick-Off!

Writers & Books and Rochester Love Notes are excited to announce the official launch of a collaborative project, Words on Walls, a free community event Thursday, June 19 from 8:30-10:00pm.

The Words on Walls Summer Kick Off will feature music, refreshments from Marty’s Meats of Rochester, complementary beer, wine, and a spectacular projection on the outer wall of Writers & Books’ historic brick building at 740 University Avenue in Rochester. The projection is slated to run from 9:00pm-10:00pm.

In larger-than-life, luminous words, an assortment of profound and colorful lines from the dozens of entries to the Rochester Love Notes blog – a community-driven project aimed at encouraging Rochester’s fans far and wide to proclaim their affection – will be projected upon the exterior façade of Writers & Books, illuminating the evening with a bright glow for all attendees (whom organizers hope will leave feeling uplifted and inspired to contribute their own Rochester Love Notes).

The event is dubbed the Words on Walls Summer Kick-Off because it marks the beginning of a calendar of similar such happenings through October, including but not limited to the popular Food Truck Rodeo at the Rochester Public Market and Rochester Fashion Week. These announcements will be made at the kick-off.

To see what Rochester Love Notes is all about, read some entries, and contribute your own message of fondness for Rochester, visit Email a Love Note at any time to if you would like your note to be considered for this event, or Tweet to @RocLoveNotes. In addition, learn more about the event at the Writers & Books website at and follow them on Twitter at @WritersandBooks.

What more ostentatious way to tell Rochester that we are hopelessly devoted to her than by projecting our love in big, bright letters upon one of her beautiful buildings? Don’t miss this first-of-a-kind, free event in our community.
