Suzanne Wilson’s Best Bets: Gloria Steinem speaks at Smith College; ‘Carmina Burana’ sing-along with Pioneer Valley Symphony

Last modified: Wednesday, June 11, 2014


Don’t be put off by the dry title of Gloria Steinem’s talk at Smith College: “Activism and Strategies for Policy Reform and Personal Development.” The legendary feminist always has lots to say, and always connects with her audience. Having turned 80 in March, Steinem told Gail Collins of The New York Times that she’s still looking ahead. “The brain cells that used to be obsessed are now free for all kinds of great things,” she said. She’ll talk about some of them, June 2, 9 a.m., Wright Hall Auditorium, Smith College.


“Carmina Burana” is one of those musical pieces that you can feel thumping in your chest as you listen. On June 10, you can sing along to it, too, thanks to the Pioneer Valley Symphony, which performs at Most Holy Redeemer Church, Route 9, Hadley. $10; 773-3664;
