Edith Wharton’s home at risk of closing

As part of the series of Big Read events, there is a bus tour through UHLS to The Mount scheduled for this coming Saturday. Unfortunately, GalleyCat is reporting that The Mount, Edith Wharton’s home and gardens in the Berkshires is at serious risk of being foreclosed on in the near future. The Mount is trying to raise $3 million by Thurday, April 24 (yes, that’s tomorrow) and is pretty far short of that goal as of this moment. Click here for more information. (If nothing else, the photos of the gardens are really something to see!)
