Melville’s connection to places in Berkshire County


The Berkshire Historical Society at Herman Melville’s Arrowhead Annual Meeting

The Berkshire Historical Society will hold its’ Annual Meeting on Wednesday, 14 May, 2014 beginning at 6:00 The Country Club of Pittsfield. The event will begin with appetizers and cash bar, followed by the formal meeting and buffet dinner and conclude with a brief talk by Marianna Poutasse and Donna Kittredge. They will be discussing their new work-in-progress, “Power of Place: Herman Melville in the Berkshires”. The book, to be published by BHS, is a brief biography of Melville with a focus on his life in the Berkshires and the significant impact this region had on him. The Country Club is, of course, part of that story as it was the family home of his Uncle Thomas Melvill and the first place Herman visited in the Berkshires. Please join us for an interesting and entertaining evening. The cost is $30.00 per person: to reserve please call 413-442-1793 × 11.
