    Sat., Dec. 7, 6:30 p.m.

    What better way to attract supporters to a library fundraiser than by booking a celebrated author? Lit lovers line up to fête young-adult fiction writer Kekla Magoon at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library’s 14th annual fundraiser: An Evening at the Library. Recently in the spotlight as a finalist for the 2019 Vermont Book Award, Magoon is the author of more than a dozen titles, including the middle-grade novel The Season of Styx Malone, about a friendship between two sheltered brothers and an intriguing new neighbor. Patrons applaud the NAACP Image Award-winning wordsmith at a reception with wine, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction. at Kellogg-Hubbard Library in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map). $60.

    If you’ve seen the 2004 Academy Award-winning Civil War drama Cold Mountain, you’ve heard musician Tim Eriksen. Drawing on his deep knowledge of musical traditions, the singer and multi-instrumentalist lent his chops to the film’s Americana soundtrack. A player of banjo, fiddle, guitar and bajo sexto — a Mexican 12-string acoustic bass — Eriksen has served as front person for groups such as folk-noise band Cordelia’s Dad, shape-note quartet Northampton Harmony, and Bosnian folk and pop band Zabe i Babe. The Americana master brings his powerful interpretations of ballads, shape-note hymns and dance tunes to a Green Mountain State concert. at River Arts in Morrisville. Stowe/Smuggs (map). $15.

    Sat., Dec. 7, 8 p.m.

    “In general, since I started school, little by little, I went further and further away from my place.” These are the words of Khongoroo, the subject of Middlebury filmmaker Sas Carey’s new documentary, Transition. The film, officially released next year, focuses on 27-year-old Khongoroo as she reconciles her upbringing as a nomadic reindeer herder in Mongolia’s remote East Taiga with her new life as a physician in the country’s capital, Ulaanbaatar. “I think I gained a lot and lost a lot,” Khongoroo says in the movie’s trailer. A reception with Carey paves the way for this special prerelease screening. at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury. Middlebury Area (map). $22.

    Active since the year 2000, Albany, N.Y., rock band SIRSY make brash rock with pizzazz to spare. Front person Melanie Krahmer, who sings, drums and manipulates electronic samples, has talked openly about her two bouts with cancer. “It doesn’t define me, but it’s definitely a part of me,” she told Rochester City Newspaper in 2019. “Like a Drum,” the opening song and title track from their 2019 EP, is a commanding proclamation of empowerment. Krahmer wrote it in celebration when her doctor informed her she could return to playing the drums after having to stop while undergoing treatment. SIRSY perform on Saturday, December 7, at Radio Bean in Burlington. at Radio Bean in Burlington (map). Free.

    Through Dec. 13

    It is a sad fact of human evolution that there are so many reasons to express resistance to one another. University of Vermont students in a 2018 art history class chose the timely topic, curating an exhibition at the Fleming Museum of Art with artworks and objects primarily drawn from the museum’s permanent collection. The show features the work “of historical and contemporary artists who have countered adversity and hardship with empowerment and expression,” explains exhibition text. The subjects range from racial violence to political suppression to the underrepresentation of women in the art world. at Fleming Museum of Art, University of Vermont in Burlington (map). Free with museum admission.

    “Breathe the Wind” at White River Gallery in South Royalton features the Norwich artist’s small gouache works on paper as well as larger oil paintings on panel and canvas. Perhaps it is Emlen’s background in graphic design that informs her cogent compositions, as well as the patchwork-like rearrangements of loosely rendered landscapes in some of her paintings. The latter are disconcerting, as if a portal to another world had opened up before our very eyes. Though taking her lead from observed reality, Emlen seems to suggest the not-seen quality of the natural world, and it is alluring. at White River Gallery in South Royalton. Randolph/Royalton (map).
