    A book launch, reading and reception with Barbara Bonner. Inspiring Generosity grows out of Barbara Bonner's extensive experience working with philanthropists and a desire to explore the power of generosity to transform our lives as individuals, families, communities, work places, cultures and the world at large. Generosity often arrives in our lives in a lightning bolt of inspiration - a word, a gesture, a story, a quotation or poem. In her presentation, Barbara will discuss these moments of inspiration in others' lives, as well as her own transformational exploration of generosity. She will give us some highlights from the book, including stories of "generosity heroes," inspirational poems and quotations from a wide variety of sources, and a few remarks on the vagaries of getting just the right publisher for her first book. Barbara's talk will be followed by a champagne reception and book-signing. This free event is presented with The Berkshire Festival of Women Writers and will take place in the Drawing Room. Seating is first come, first served.
