Although the Berkshire Record  posts only its Page One online, if you pick up a copy of the March 27 Record and turn to the Berkshires section, you’ll see a fabulous photo of Suzi Banks Baum from last year’s Out of the Mouths of Babes event, taken by Christina Lane.  The story that accompanies the image, by writer Emily Kramer, is quite fabulous too–go out and get a copy of the Record, and see for yourself!
