    Once Upon a Painting

    • Hang on to that Halloween costume and come dressed as your favorite storybook character.

    • Pick up a little something bound for your library, at the Smith College Campus School Pop-Up Book Fair
    • 3:15pm  Jigs and reels by the Wailing Banshees, Smith's Celtic music ensemble, will add a soundtrack and a whole lot of craic to our fairy tale setting.
