Mathias Svalina Dream Delivery Service

Mathias Svalina and his Dream Delivery Service are back!

Poet & dream-deliverer Mathias Svalina returns to Buffalo this month! In addition to writing & delivering daily dreams to Buffalonians through Dream Delivery Service, we’re excited to partner with Svalina & friends for a number of public events between mid-May and mid-June.

  • On Saturday, May 14, join us at JB for a Dream Delivery Service kickoff reading featuring Svalina and Sony Ton-Aime, poet & director of literary arts at Chautauqua Institution.
  • On Wednesdays (May 18, May 25, June 1, June 8) from noon-1 PM, Svalina will take up a weekly residency in Buffalo’s Reading Park at the Central Library, where the public is invited to invent & write dreams for the Reading Park’s landscape, creating an interactive literary installation.
  • And of course, subscribe to Dream Delivery Service to wake up to a dream in your mailbox each morning, written and delivered in a little pink envelope.
