SOLAR ECLIPSE TALK
Williamstown, 1:30 p.m.
Prof. Jay Pasachoff of Williams College will talk about the forthcoming August 21 solar eclipse at the Milne Public Library. Though the path of totality of the eclipse goes coast-to-coast from Oregon to South Carolina for the first time in 99 years, Williamstown will have only a partial eclipse, with 71 percent of the sun's diameter covered by the moon. Pasachoff, who will be viewing his 66th solar eclipse, is an expert on viewing eclipses safely.  He will be discussing how to observe partial eclipses and he will have many pairs of safe solar glasses available for free distribution, courtesy of the Moore Foundation.  Prof. Pasachoff will also be describing (in a non-technical, illustrated way) some of the research about the sun at the eclipse that his summer students, colleagues, and others will be carrying out.

BIDWELL HISTORY TALK
Tyringham, 10 a.m.
Award-winning historian John Demos will discuss the history of witchcraft and witch-hunting from the Middle Ages to the present day and his long engagement with the topic. In the course of his research, Demos learned of his own ancestral connection to a key figure in the Salem witch-hunt of 1692-93. John Putnam, his 10-times grandfather and a longtime Salem resident in the 17th century, had led the charge against the suspected "witches" in that notorious case. The Bidwell House Museum History Talks are held at Tyringham Union Church, Main Road, Tyringham. Suggested donation $15 per person, $10 for members of the museum.

'THE DREYFUS AFFAIR'
Pittsfield, 11:30 a.m.
The Dreyfus Affair divided the French nation and attracted international notice.  It took twelve years for the scandal to run its course with politicians and ordinary citizens taking sides, governments falling, coups d’état and even assassinations attempted, reports falsified, documents forged, forgers committing suicide, murders suspected, and the church and military establishments under attack. Temple Anshe Amunim will host a dramatic power-point presentation by Jesse Waldinger, who lectured last year on the Leo Frank trial.  Waldinger, an attorney and playwright, resides in Canaan, N.Y., with his wife, director/teacher Barbara Waldinger. Guests are invited to bring their own lunch; beverages and dessert will be provided.  Admission is free for Temple members and $5 for non-members.
