Berkshire Festival of Women Writers 2012 Features 100 Women, 40 Events [Berkshire on Stage]
It’s the second annual Berkshire Festival of Women Writers, a collaborative event sponsored by Bard College at Simon’s Rock, celebrated county-wide in the month of March, Women’s History Month.
From popular and familiar writers like Ruth Reichl and Francine Prose, to less well-known but no less talented poets, performers and writers in a variety of genres, nearly 100 women of all ages and from many backgrounds will be sharing their talents this month at more than 40 Festival events, including readings, lectures, workshops, performances and screenings, held at Berkshire County venues from Sheffield to Williamstown.
The Festival is a continuation of the decade-long series of annual International Women’s Day conferences held at Bard College at Simon’s Rock, co-sponsored by Berkshire Women for Women Worldwide. This year we’ll celebrate International Women’s Day on Sunday, March 18 with a day-long mini-Film Festival, co-sponsored by the Berkshire International Film Festival and the Berkshire Human Rights Speaker Series.
