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.

Bidwell House Museum's Second Summer History Talk

MONTEREY, Mass. — Bidwell House Museum will be having its second history talk of the summer "Murder and Mercy on the Susquehanna: Captain Civility of Conestoga Teaches Pennsylvania Colonists New Principles of Justice" at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 9 at Tyringham Union Church with a Zoom option.
Pulitzer Prize winner and New York University Professor Nicole Eustacea will discuss a forgotten murder of a Seneca hunter near Conestoga, Pennsylvania by two white fur traders on the eve of a major treaty between Iroquois leaders and European colonists.
According to the press release, this attack set into motion a series of criminal investigations and cross-cultural negotiations that challenged the definition of justice in early America with lessons that remain relevant to debates about criminal justice reform today.
Tickets for members who wish to attend in-person cost $10 or $15 for non-members. The zoom option is free for members free or $10 for non-members $10.
