John Bye has lived in rural western Massachusetts for more than 30 years. In a divided time, this podcast documents his search for common ground among those who live…In These Hills.
In this episode John talks with Denise Perkins. Denise is a lifelong resident of Cummington. Her family has deep, multigenerational roots in our town and an abiding commitment to public service and safety. She reflects on the power of family to define place, and how her experience growing up here shapes her work as a teacher, her concerns about the future, and her on-going love for our town.
