Join us at the gallery for a 3 day marathon reading of Alice! Local actors and other great read-alouders young and old will be reading chapters from the beloved book by Lewis Carroll.  There will be special editions of the book available for purchase provided by Matt Tannenbaum of The Bookstore in Lenox.  And in addition to gallery artists’ work, Alice inspired art by local children’s book author and illustrator, Adam Gudeon will be on view.  The gallery will be open as usual and readers will be taking turns reading throughout the day(s) in an informal yet engaging way. No reservations necessary, drop in any time for a chapter or two-you never know which fabulous local celeb might be reading at any time!
Tea will be served.

Just a few of the many wonderful local celebs who’ll be reading this weekend are Elizabeth Aspenlieder, Rudy Bach, Rikke Borge, Kale Brown, Amber Chand and Henry Strozier.  In addition, on Sunday afternoon at around 2:30, award winning audiobook narrators Jim Frangione and Alison Larkin will be stopping by to read. Jim Frangione is a well known actor based in the Berkshires. Alison Larkin is the bestselling author of The English American, an acclaimed comedienne, and the narrator of over 130 audiobooks including, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass – the 150th anniversary edition, which received rave reviews and was recorded here in the Berkshires at Berkshire Media Artists!
