Stories With Soul

All Souls Church on 80th Street and Lexington Ave has a wonderful program every Wednesday evening called "Stories With Soul." These hour-long short story readings and discussions in the beautiful Ware room are open to the public and free.

Last night I had the pleasure of reading "The National Pastime," by John Cheever.

If you are a lover of literature and interested in reading or just listening, contact Steve Michelman for more information:
