Book Club  |  Buffalo Lockjaw with Greg Ames

Part of the Burchfield Penney's Meet the Author Series

Thursday, April 7, 2016, 5:30–7 pm

Join Buffalo-native Greg Ames for a discussion of his book Buffalo Lockjaw.

James Fitzroy isn't doing so well. Though his old friends in Buffalo believe his life in New York City is a success, in fact he writes ridiculous taglines for a greeting card company. Now he's coming home on Thanksgiving to visit his aging father and dying mother, and unlike other holidays, he's not sure how this one is going to end. Buffalo Lockjaw introduces a fresh new voice in American fiction.

This year The Center’s book club has selected books written by regional authors all who will be joining the discussion either in person or via Skype or FaceTime.

For information, please contact Mary Kozub at 716-878-3156 or email
