    A Spy on the Bus: Memoir of a Company Rat

    Join the Friends for brunch and a spirited talk by Margean Gladysz about her fascinating memoir, A Spy on the Bus. PBS NewsHour host Jim Lehrer wrote in his review “There will never be another book like this. There simply could not be another Margean Gladysz, who as a young woman was paid by Greyhound, Trailways and other companies to ride buses... all over the country in the 1940’s. She was there to spot and report back on drunk, stealing, reckless and nutty bus drivers... A Spy on the Bus is a treat and a half. I promise.”

    Ms. Gladysz’s presentation follows a brief annual meeting and the election of new officers.
