Priory Scholars of NYC Summer 2015 Meeting

Its official – our Summer School session will be held on July 25, 2015 – 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Class will convene at: THE CHURCHILL TAVERN, 45 East 28th Street, New York, NY 10016. The restaurant is located between Madison and Park Avenues, around the corner from the 28th Street subway station for the 4 & 6 trains.

We would like to remind students that while we have a reasonably large dining room we will still need to let the restaurant know how many students to expect. As the room seats approximately 40 people comfortably it is a good idea to register early. So please confirm your enrolment via email to no later than July 1, 2015.

We have made a few changes regarding payment; please send your checks to our Bursar, Christopher Zordan, 184 Blew Court, East Brunswick, NJ 08816 (again by July 1st) or you can pay cash at the door. Pre-payment is preferred (make checks payable to Christopher Zordan).

The other change is the price. For the last 4 years we have managed to maintain the same price for our brunch. However due to increased costs at the Churchill we have to raise tuition to $40.00 per student.

Your homework assignment is to read/re-read “The Adventure of the Sussex Vampire.” You can look forward to another insightful discussion led by Prof. Nick Martorelli and another mind boggling quiz prepared by quiz master Raj Pandravada.

The main discussion points will be:

  • Trust (and misplaced trust) plays an important role throughout this story. How does trust within the Ferguson clan affect the family dynamic?
  • Think about the effect Watson’s writing produces in this story. Is it as atmospheric as the title suggests, or is he trying to achieve something else?
  • The Giant Rat of Sumatra. Anyone have a favorite pastiche of this particular unrecorded case?

As this will be our summer meeting, we are asking our students to wear (or bring) their favorite Sherlock Holmes T-shirt. As always there will be lively toasts, a rousing rendition of our school song and more.
Respectfully yours,

Judith Freeman, Headmistress
