Ed.: We can’t wait for warmer weather, so from now until the official start of spring (that’s March 20 — mark your calendars!), we’re delivering our top 15 signs of spring. Check www.hvmag.com daily for more posts.
It’s festival season — but we’re not talking about music. This year’s Woodstock Writers Festival, moderated by author Martha Frankel, features a Story Slam inspired by the children’s book When the Wind Blows. Everyone is welcome to attend, either as a participant or a spectator. (Participants can bring stories under three-and-a-half minutes, which will be judged by author Hester Mundis, WDST deejay Greg Gattine, and writer Kitty Sheehan.) Admission includes wine and beer.
