March Festival of Women Writers Planning 55 Events in Berkshire County [Berkshire on Stage]

Women writers of all ages and from many different walks of life will be featured in the Third Annual Berkshire Festival of Women Writers, taking place throughout the month of March, Women’s History Month, at venues all over Berkshire County.

The Festival, sponsored by Bard College at Simon’s Rock with the collaboration of many other organizations, includes the participation of more than 150 women writers, at 55 separate events.

Of course, we are especially interested in the performances and film screenings–a special women-only edition of Made in the Berkshires, with performances by Sally-Jane Heit, Susan Merrill and Joy Spivak; a new show from Alison Larkin, Alison Larkin Live!, at the Unicorn; a Festival /BIFF screening of the new Dutch film Water Children; a special International Women’s Day film screening of Sweet Dreams, featuring local filmmaker Rob Fruchtman and Blue Marble Ice Cream founder Jennifer Dundas; and a screening of sections of the documentary film Half the Sky at the Mahaiwe, with a community conversation on women’s human rights moderated by Caroline Wheeler of Sisters for Peace and Kristen Van Ginhoven of WAM Theater.
