Butterflies and beyond: Following the rhythm of the seasons, Kim Smith presents a stunning slide show and lecture demonstrating how to create a welcoming haven for bees, birds, butterflies, and other wildlife at the Berkshire Museum on South Street in Pittsfield at 10 a.m. Native plants and examples of organic and architectural features will be discussed based on their value to particular vertebrates and invertebrates. The talk will be followed by screening of "Life Story of the Black Swallowtail Butterfly," a 45-minute narrated film that takes place in a garden and at the sea’s edge. Both are free with museum admission.

Sunday

Eat this up: The Bookstore and Get Lit Wine Bar in Lenox will sponsor a reading and book-signing of Michael Ballon at the Castle Street Cafe in Great Barrington today at 4 p.m. Ballon will read from his new book "A Chef’s Life: Farm to Table Cooking in the Berkshires." In the spring of 1989, Chef Michael Ballon opened the Castle Street Cafe, currently celebrating its 25th anniversary. The book is not a cookbook, but rather a collection o fabout 45 short essays, written over the course of many years, about being achef and also interacting with farmers, customers, and staff. While the book does include some recipes, their inclusion is meant to help illustrate points about everyday life, changes in food trends, where and how chefs get inspiration, and what it is like to run a restaurant.
