The Berkshire Experience

In summertime, the words “The Berkshire Experience” suggest evenings on the lawn at Tanglewood, hiking the Appalachian Trail, and shopping the antique stores of Route 7. But that’s the title, I’ve just read, for a talk I’ll be giving in January at the American Historical Society. It certainly gives me room to manoeuvre. I just wonder what the Berkshire Experience will be, six months from now! In any case, here’s the program.

Monday, January 5, 2009: 8:30 AM-10:30 AM
Sheraton New York, New York Ballroom West
