“Do you believe in ghosts?

No, I don’t believe in ghosts, but I’m afraid of them.”

So begins Edith Wharton’s introduction to her own book of ghost stories. Wharton herself admitted to sleeping with the light on, even as she applied her writing talents to exploring the world of the supernatural and grotesque. All are welcome for a reading of Wharton’s eerie ghost story, “A Bottle of Perrier.” This haunting treat will be read by longtime friend of The Mount and Shakespeare & Company actress Ariel Bock. This event will sell out, so pre-registration is strongly recommended.

The Mount is a Massachusetts Cultural Council UP designated organization welcoming participants of all disabilities. Please contact Nicole Williams at 413-551-5100 or by email,, to discuss accommodations needed to participate fully in this event. Caregivers are admitted free-of-charge.
