Reader's Digest exhibit recalls the magazine's heyday

New York Times
At one time, everyone at Reader's Digest got Fridays off in May, and a week of paid travel to visit anywhere in the country. There were free garden plots at the magazine's headquarters for those who couldn't grow tomatoes at home. These perks are noted in "Reader’s Digest, the Local Magazine that Conquered the World," an exhibit that opened earlier this month at the New Castle Historical Society in Chappaqua, NY.
