It was exemplary local programming, exemplifying what our towns are capable of producing — at least in some circles.
Alice read from her new book — “Coming To My Senses: The Making of a Counterculture Cook.” Beth Ruyak of Capital Public Radio asked probing questions.
The discussion expanded well beyond food — into politics, economics and American culture. It was a full house.
The Center has done an extraordinary job setting the “gold standard” for lecture series in our towns. Another that came to mind was mountain climber Melissa Arnott. We could use more educational and inspiring speakers’ programs.
We have long been supporters of The Center, as well as many other local profits, and this fall we are doubling our annual cash donation to the “Encore Club” level.
We think it is a wise investment in our towns, and we are more than happy to reward the caliber of programming when we see it.
