An engaged crowd of nearly 200 streamed into the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center tonight to see Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, presented by Kristen van Ginhoven ofWAM Theatre, Caroline Wheeler of Sisters For Peace. and the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers.
Following the screening, a spirited community conversation ensued with special guests Jeanet T. Ingalls, Maia Conty, Janis Broderick, Bryan Nurnberger and Ananda Timpane all of whom hit home the message that each of us can contribute to making the world safer and more promising for women and girls here in our own communities, as well as internationally.
Hats off to Kristen and Caroline for putting together this fantastic Festival event, and
thanks to Beryl Jolly of the Mahaiwe and McTeigue & McClelland for making it possible.
