Suzanne Wilson’s best bets
‘SEEN THE GLORY’

John Hough Jr., author of “Seen the Glory: A Novel of the Battle of Gettysburg,” reads from his book Tuesday, 7 p.m. at the Odyssey Bookshop. Hough tells the story of two brothers who enlist in the 20th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment and wind up at the carnage of Gettysburg. 534-7307
ANOTHER GOOD BET
“Drylands: A Rural American Saga” is an exhibit by acclaimed photographer Lionel Delvingne. The photos, taken in Washington, appeared in the book of the same title with essays by Steve Turner. They capture that area’s agricultural life — and the troubles that have led to abandoned farmsteads, shrinking towns and shuttered local businesses. Elusie Galley, 43 Main St., Easthampton, through July 6. Monday, 1 to 5:30 p.m.; Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
