Literary Lights Shine in Spencertown

Evidence abounds that our region is packed with the sort of left-brainers who like to stay at home with a good book (litmus test: nightclubs per capita—uh, zero?; independent bookstores—off the charts), but on Saturday night, readers and writers alike were out in force to attend the Spencertown Academy‘s Literary Harvest Dinner.  The most glittering in a two-week-long roster of book-centered events was held at the idyllic Spencertown farm of Austerlitz Supervisor George Jahn and his wife Karen.
