About this event

Join Robert Oakes, author of Ghosts of the Berkshires, every Tuesday night during the month of October for a spooky fireside tale. Each week, Robert will share a new reading, drawn from the pages of his book, inspired by Berkshire lore, or adapted from the works of local authors. A discussion and Q&A session will follow each reading.

The readings will occur over Zoom at 9PM on October 5, 12, 19, and 26. You will be sent the link when you purchase your ticket. Use the same link each week to access the event. Your $25 ticket (plus a $3.16 service fee) will give you access to all four readings. Ticket price for new registrants will be reduced by $5 each week to reflect the fewer number of events.

About Ghosts of the Berkshires

Before it became a haven for arts and culture, the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts was a rugged, sparsely populated frontier. From the early days of revolutionary fervor and industrial enterprise to today’s tourism, many chilling stories remain. A lost girl haunts a cemetery in Washington, and mysterious spirits still perform at Tanglewood. From the ghostly halls of the Houghton Mansion to the eerie events at the Hoosac Tunnel, residents and visitors alike have felt fear and awe in these hills, telling tales of shadow figures, disembodied voices and spectral trains.
