Celebration of The Written and Spoken Word at The Mount

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsThe Mount, writer Edith Wharton’s magnificent property in Lenox (executive director Susan Whistler, at right), was the scene on Wednesday August 25 of a party celebrating the release of an audio book, Edith Wharton on Audio, Vol. 1, three stories by Wharton read by Shakespeare and Company’s Jonathan Epstein (The Winter’s Tale), Tod Randolph (Richard III) and Berkshire Theatre Festival’s Tara Franklin (The Guardsman).  The project is a collaboration between The Mount Press and Berkshire Media Artists (BMA Studios).  Why a mid-week celebration?  So contingents from five theater companies (Shakespeare &  Company, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Barrington Stage, WAM, and the Wharton Salon) could attend.
