Mister Ron's Basement #835
Our Monday book serialization is George Ade's 1903 collection, 'In Babel -- Stories of Chicago.' The stories in this book range from the hysterically funny to the pathetically sad. Altogether, they paint a fascinating portrait of turn-of-the-last-century Chicago.
A Chicago businessman prepares for every eventuality (or so he thinks) as he is asked to give a speech at an alumni reunion in 'Dubley '89.'
Time: approx sixteen minutes
