MONDAY, August 22nd at 7:00pm - Robert Louis Stevenson's "New Arabian Nights"

Robert Louis Stevenson, first published in 1882, is a collection of short stories previously published in magazines between 1877 and 1880. The collection contains Stevenson's first published fiction, and a few of the stories are considered by some critics to be his best work, as well as pioneering works in the English short story tradition.
Caledonia will begin The Pavilion on the Links thought by some, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to be the high water-mark in Stevenson's craft, and the beginning of the English short story tradition.  As with several of the stories in this collection, The Pavilion on the Links does not take place in Arabia at all, but begins its journey in Scotland.
