Fahrenheit 451 is a celebration of readers and what is means to be a reader — without readers, in this world at least, we would have no books.

Adapted from the Ray Bradbury novel and directed by Francois Truffaut, Farhenheit 451 imagines a future society that has banned all reading material. The firemen work to keep the fires at the temperature that paper burns. However, one of them meets a book-loving girl, and he begins to rethink his work and his whole world. (Run time: 1 hour, 52 minutes)

The Clark celebrates the sesquicentennial of the Williamstown Library. On March 9, 1874, the town of Williamstown approved a free public library for its residents. 150 years later, the library continues to enrich the town, making it an interesting, vibrant, active, and involved community. Several months of anniversary celebrations will be held during 2024, including this film series celebrating the transformative power of reading.

Free. Accessible seats available.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
