Women: Don’t Forget To Vote!

At a time when the nation is largely divided along partisan lines and when there is a great deal of anxiety about the upcoming presidential election, it’s a wonderful time to celebrate the success of the women’s suffrage movement, which secured the vote for women in August 1920.

A recipe for roasted zucchini and cherry tomato pizza is only one of dozens included in “The Berkshires Farm Table Cookbook.” The authors will do a Zoom talk on Friday, Aug. 14, with the Hotchkiss Library of Sharon, Conn.

Here’s What To Do With Your Summer Farm Bounty
