SUMMER IN THE BERKSHIRES: A LOOK BACK
Adams, 6-7 p.m.
In our own time, the Berkshires attract people from all over the world to take in shows, go on hikes, huddle close at a Tanglewood Concert, and wander around for a weekend or longer. But what did people do in the past on visits to this piquant corner of Massachusetts? Author and historian Max Grinnell will offer a short tour via photos and other illustrative material to look at what folks did with their leisure time at the Bascom Lodge atop Mount Greylock.
