MONDAY, September 5 at 7:00PM : More from The Works of Robert Louis Stevenson
Stevenson had a sickly childhood, and lived only to the age of 44. That was a young death even in the late 19th century. As an adult he was a lawyer, but his interests were varied as is well reflected in his literature: everything from A Child's Garden of Verses to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
