“Light-houses, my boy! Beacons of the future!” [NAVA] 

The Beacon Society needs your help. In particular, it needs you to spread the word to teachers, librarians, students and more.

Established in 2003, the Beacon Society introduces young people to the Sherlock Holmes stories and recognizes people who are doing their part to do the same. Through grants, awards, essay contests and more, the group has many resources and opportunities for all who wish to get involved.

In this episode, we're joined by Headlight Denny Dobry, BSI ("A Single Large Airy Sitting Room") and Communications Chair Steve Mason, who tell us about the priorities of the group and what you can expect ahead.

Also, tune in for the latest Canonical Couplet. We have another opportunity for you to win a prize in this episode.
