The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires will present author, award winning journalist, and Managing Editor of Orion Magazine, Andrew D. Blechman, who will speak about his book, Leisureville.  Part investigative journalism, part humor and part social critique, the book explores the attraction of gated and retirement communities, what it's really like behind the gated walls and what the phenomenon means for America at large.

Program is free.  $2 suggested donation for Kosher Lunch following the program.  Advanced lunch reservations are required and can be made up to 9am on the day of the program by calling 413-442-2200.
