    Margaret Atwood: Live in Cinemas

    Margaret Atwood: Live in Cinemas

    Tools

    Wed., Sept. 18, 1 p.m.

    At the end of Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale, it seems that the unnamed protagonist has fled the misogynistic and oppressive Republic of Gilead. Readers can find out for sure when the book’s sequel, The Testaments, enters the world this week. To mark the occasion, the Canadian author discusses her career with fellow writer Samira Ahmed at London’s National Theatre. The conversation is transmitted to more than 1,000 cinemas around the world, including two in Vermont. Representatives from advocacy groups such as the Vermont Women’s Fund and the Clarina Howard Nichols Center are on hand at the Stowe screening. at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, Stowe Mountain Resort in Stowe. Stowe/Smuggs (map). $10-17.

    River Whyless, the Dead Tongues

    River Whyless, the Dead Tongues

    Tools

    Wed., Sept. 18, 8:30 p.m.

    In his project the Dead Tongues, singer-songwriter Ryan Gustafson makes music for wanderers. Armed with a banjo and a darkened temperament, the Durham, N.C., artist creates moody, progressive bluegrass tunes that inspire images of a blurred, passing roadside through a car window. Given that he hails from the heart of Appalachia, Gustafson shapes his music with the mountainous region’s traditional sounds. But he also instills whispers of pan-global elements into his largely Americana tunes. The Dead Tongues open for the River Whyless on Wednesday, September 18, at ArtsRiot in Burlington. at ArtsRiot in Burlington (map). $15.

    Tools

    Through Sept. 21

    “We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives.” The late author Toni Morrison (pictured) spoke these words while accepting a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1993. Described by O magazine as “a beacon in African American culture,” the writer made her mark with novels such as the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1987 novel Beloved and 1977’s Song of Solomon. Vermont poet Toussaint St. Negritude honors Morrison, who died on August 5 at age 88, with the We Do Language Symposium, a week of poetry, music, workshops and discussions. Participating local voices include St. Negritude, University of Vermont professor Major Jackson, published poet Reuben Jackson and Afro-jazz musical artist KeruBo. at Various locations statewide in Various locations statewide.

    Vermont Pastel Society

    Tools

    Through Sept. 27

    Don’t confuse the name of the medium pastel with the results it produces. Though pink, baby blue and soft yellow are certainly options, pastel paintings are often wildly vibrant and dramatic. And mastery of pastel sticks, whether oil or chalk, requires considerable effort. Helping artists achieve that mastery is the mission of the Vermont Pastel Society, and a current exhibition of member works at the T.W. Wood Gallery in Montpelier puts their successes on display. at T.W. Wood Gallery in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).
