Access multiple shared calendars in Outlook

I have an Outlook 2016 client connected to an Exchange 2013 Server.  I created a Shared Mailbox Resource called "SHARED" and gave myself PublishingAuthor privileges on the "SHARED:\Contacts" folder.  Specifically I did not make myself the owner of the mailbox because I only want to be able to see the contacts, nothing else.  Doing this for the one main folder, I have no issue.  

Now that I see his contact list in my outlook, I have a bunch of related contacts I want to group together in a sub folder.  As a PublishingAuthor, I expect to have inheritable rights to create a subfolder underneath "Contacts", and then be able to open up that folder as an additional Shared Contact Folder.  This I cannot do.  

If I right click on the shared contact folder, and select new folder, it does not allow me to put it under the existing share.  If I log in as the owner of the shared resource, create a subfolder, and grant PublishingAuthor access to myself (same as primary contacts folder), I cannot open up the second shared folder.

Any and all help would be appreciated.

I'm OK with that.  Perfectly fine if they're on the same level.  But when I add permissions to the second calendar, how do I add it to my Outlook client?
Can you not create the folders first and set permission after creating them?

Sharing calendars should do the trick.
