Saturday Reading Group
The Saturday Reading Group is for anyone who loves to read, socialize in English, and meet new people. This is a partner event with the Film Club.
The June read for the group is “Night Bus” a short story by Samuel Hpkins Adams. This short story was originally published in Cosmopolitan magazine in August 1933 and then reprinted in 1951 as the third in a Dell Books series called “Dell Dimers” as each novelette was sold at 10 cents (known as “dime novels” in the 19th century). The story is about Ellie Andrews who has just tied the knot with society aviator King Westley when she is whisked away to her father’s yacht and out of King’s clutches. Ellie jumps ship and eventually winds up on a bus headed back to her husband. Reluctantly she must accept the help of out-of- work reporter Peter Warne. Actually, Warne doesn’t give her any choice: either she sticks with him until he gets her back to her husband, or he’ll blow the whistle on Ellie to her father. Either way, Peter gets what (he thinks!) he wants …. a really juicy newspaper story.
