MONDAY, September 5 at 7:00PM : More from The Works of Robert Louis Stevenson

Tonight Caledonia concludes Stevenson's short story the Pavilion on the Links (1880) and then will present a selection from Treasure Island, one of his best known novels.

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.

For another brief view of aspects of Stevenson's life and works, visit the North Carolina State University Wiki entry for him.
 Next week:  More from Stevenson's Treasure Island as International Talk Like a Pirate Day approaches.
