A reading and talk by Karen Shepard. "The Celestials" is a historical novel about a group of 75 Chinese factory workers who arrived in North Adams, Massachusetts in 1870 to break a strike at the Sampson Shoe Factory. Except for the foreman, they don't speak English. They didn't know they were strikebreakers. They stayed for ten years. Join us for a lively reading and discussion with Karen Shepard about the fact, fiction and writing process behind her historical novel, "The Celestials." 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.
