Welcome home Saturday Evening Post | RSuite CMSThe Saturday Evening Post is moving back to its hometown in the second quarter of 2013. The iconic magazine started in 1821 with roots dating back to Benjamin Franklin's The Pennsylvania Gazette, which was first published in 1728. At one point The Saturday Evening Post was the most widely circulated weekly magazine in America.

Perhaps best remembered with images from Norman Rockwell dancing through Americans' collective heads. The Post published stories, poetry, and essays by a dazzling number of great Americans:

  • Ray Bradbury
  • Kurt Vonnegut
  • Sinclair Lewis
  • Carl Sandburg
  • Edgar Allan Poe
  • William Faulkner
  • F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • Dorothy Parker
  • Jack London
  • the list goes on
In 1970 the business was moved to Indianapolis after it was acquired by Beurt SerVaas. Business operations will continue in Indianapolis. Philadelphia will become the base of operations for editorial director and associate publisher Steve Slon, a managing editor, a reporter and Web editors.
