Mister Ron's Basement #1569

In 1897, fairly early in his career, illustrator and cartoonist Art Young published a collection of lectures by famous writers called 'Authors' Readings.' He also wrote short biographies of the writers and wonderful included life drawings, autographed by his subject.

We really don't know why we have never featured any stories by Opie Read in the Basement before, but we will offer more in the the future. Meanwhile, today we offer Art Young's biography of Read and the short lecture story 'A Backwoods Sunday.'

Time: approx fifteen minutes
