  • Wonderful to see the tribute to Frances Crowe. Chilling to try on the red cloak! Reminded me of The Handmaid's Tail.
  • I keep going back for the focused and relevant presentations, often centered on the latest exhibit of art, photography, or memorabilia, or a new documentary about Northampton.
