GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Simon's Rock Alum C. Jane Taylor will host a book reading of her new book, "Spirit Traffic," on May 13 at 7:00 p.m. at the Black Box Theater at the Daniel Arts Center at Bard College at Simon's Rock. 
 
The book reading at Simon's Rock is part of Taylor's North American Book Tour for Spirit Traffic from May-August 2022. The reading and book signing will be followed by a discussion and moth-style storytelling with audience members sharing their own adventure stories. 
 
Registration to attend the event must be made here. Social distancing and masking are required. The event will also be live-streamed over Zoom here.
 
According to a press release, "Spirit Traffic" recounts how, at the age of 50, the author learned to ride a motorcycle, overcame the terror of navigating her steep dirt driveway in Vermont, and, three days after her son's college graduation, set off with him and her yoga-teacher husband (his stepdad) on a 10,000-mile two-wheel adventure that took them all into uncharted territory-both as novice riders, and as a family.

The Wallflowers to Perform at Mahaiwe

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center announces the American rock act the Wallflowers, Jakob Dylan's Grammy-winning outfit, will perform live on its stage on Friday, May 20 at 8 p.m. 
 
"We're excited to bring the Wallflowers to the Berkshires," says Mahaiwe Executive Director Janis Martinson. "A headlining talent like Jakob Dylan is a great reason to shake off the winter and come out for live music this spring." 
 
According to a press release, ror the past 30 years, the Wallflowers have stood as one of rock's most dynamic and purposeful bands – a unit dedicated to and continually honing a sound that meshes timeless songwriting and storytelling with a hard-hitting and decidedly modern musical attack. That signature style has been present through the decades, baked into the grooves of smash hits like 1996's "Bringing Down the Horse" as well as more recent and exploratory fare like 2012's "Glad All Over."  
 
In 2021, the Wallflowers released "Exit Wounds." The collection marks the first new Wallflowers material since "Glad All Over."
