"The Greater Coney" is hosted by the J.C. Elkins O. Henry Literary Discussion Group, a monthly reading (and discussion) group focused on the short stories of William Sydney Porter (O. Henry) and named after docent emeritus J.C. Elkins.

Dennis Carahan, having lost his job and recently having fought with his girlfriend, embarks on a journey to Coney Island in an attempt to buoy his spirits. Coney is changing though, as will Dennis Carahan's circumstances.

This event is FREE! Newcomers welcome!

This reading may be held next door in the sister museum to the O. Henry Museum, the Susanna Dickinson Museum (411 E. 5th Street) if necessary.
