Priory Scholars of NYC Spring 2016 Meeting

I am delighted to announce that our Spring semester will commence on: April 30, 2016 – 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.

Reminder: 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 45 people comfortably it is a good idea to register early. So please confirm your enrollment via email to Chris at no later than April 15, 2016.

Please send your checks for $40 per student to our Bursar, Christopher Zordan, 184 Blew Court, East Brunswick, NJ 08816 (again by Apr. 16th). The admission fee covers your meal plus two brunch drinks. You can pay cash at the door, however pre-payment is preferred.

If financial challenges may prevent you from attending, send inquiry to Headmistress at about our scholarship program.

Our lesson plan is based on “The Adventure of the Six Napoleons.” We will be challenged by another of Raj Pandravada’s quizzes. Please note Prof. Nick Matorelli’s exemplary discussion points are:

  • This story opens with Lestrade, now a welcome guest, as part of the fireside scene at Baker Street. Think about how Holmes’ relationship to the police has changed since A Study in Scarlet.
  • And what of Holmes’ relationship with the press? What do you make of both the way he treats Mr. Harker and the ruse he employs?
  • Watson’s writing in this case has a very particular style and feel. What does the writing itself contribute to reading this story?

In addition, there will also be toasts, homework assignments, a rousing rendition of our school song and more.

Respectfully yours,

Judith Freeman, Headmistress
