BOOK CLUB : THE BUFFALO KID BY RÉAL LAPLAINE
After 31 years of homeless destitution on the streets of Buffalo, 71 year-old John Ross, aka the Buffalo Kid, is feeling the pangs of hunger as the blistering wind shakes him to the core. Desperate for food, he stops a stranger and asks for some money. The man hands over $50 and walks away. Stunned by his generosity, the Buffalo Kid follows him and discovers that the stranger is not what he appears to be, and he soon finds himself engaged in a test of humanity, a bizarre and thrilling collaboration that will give him a second chance at life and challenge him in ways he never thought possible.
The Center’s book club takes place on the First Thursday of the month and features books written by WNY authors. Réal Laplaine will be joining us by Skype from Sweden!
For more information, please contact Mary Kozub at 716-878-3156 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

LECTURE / DISCUSSION: THE MILESTONES OF SCIENCE DISCUSSION & EXHIBITION
This event is free with gallery admission. More information at www.BurchfieldPenney.org
In order to illustrate that Science (astronomy) is a part of how we know the world and not something foreign, Peter Reczek will moderate a panel of scientists, artists, historian and theologians to examine the work of Astronomer and Mathematician Nicolas Copernicus. The event will focuses on observing other ways of knowing the world through various disciplines demonstrating its equal validity with science. Not better, just different.
The relevance of science can hardly be overstated; it dominates the world in which we live. Discoveries made by stargazers Claudius Ptolemy (AD c100-170), Nicolaus Copernicus (1473 – 1543) and Johannes Kepler (1571 – 1630) helped us to understand the vast universe in which we live.
