The Girls in Their Summer Dresses by Irwin Shaw
Mr. and Mrs. Mike Loomis are out for a Sunday morning stroll on Fifth Avenue in The Village. Then Frances notices that Mike is enjoying the view more avidly than a happily married man should. (1939)
The Enormous Radio by John Cheever
Jim and Irene Westcott are average New York apartment dwellers except they love listening to classical music on the radio.  However, their new radio gets some very unusual stations. (1947)
Other July Story Time Dates - July 24, 1 p.m. and July 29, 7 p.m.
The Waltz by Dorothy Parker
Parker’s sarcastic wit takes center stage when an invitation to dance sparks an internal monologue considerably different in tone and content from what she is saying aloud to her dance partner.  (1933)
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty  by James Thurber
Walter Mitty’s interior life is much more exciting than his daily existence. In his fantasy life, he is always the hero. (1939)
