Book Reading and Signing with Roselle Chartock
Join local author Roselle Chartock on Wednesday, April 1, from 6:00-7:00pm, for a reading and signing of her new book, Windsor Mountain School: A Beloved Berkshire Institution.
When their Jewish heritage and progressive philosophies made the Bondy family a target of the Nazi regime, they were forced to sell their school and start over in America. First opened in Windsor, VT, the Windsor Mountain School was relocated to Lenox, MA in 1944. With an educational philosophy well ahead of its tiome, it became the first co-ed, integrated boarding school in Berkshire County. Drawn to its multicultural approach and international curriculum, the school attracted families such as the Belafontes, the Poitiers and the Campanellas until hard financial times forced its closure in 1975.
