The Boston Book Festival Is Coming to the Berkshires this October

BOSTON, Mass. — The Boston Book Festival is coming to the Berkshires this October, virtually.

The festival is collaborating with Melville's Arrowhead home in Pittsfield and The Mount in Lenox to be part of the festival's Book Hunt, a scavenger hunt that will involve posting clues on social media as to where the books are hidden on the different properties. 
 
The Emily Dickinson House and Eric Carle Museum in Amherst, the Harriet Beecher Stowe House in Hartford, Conn., and the Walden Woods Project and Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House in Concord will also be included.
