An Evening with Frances Moore Lappé

Thursday, April 22, 2021 from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM

In America today, many of us can feel overwhelmed by the simultaneous political, economic, and climate crises upon us. Frances Moore Lappé discusses these three interacting roots of our problems: a brutal form of capitalism, big money's grip on our democracy, and climate catastrophe. She shows us how realizing their unity can be empowering, not overwhelming. They open historic opportunity. Addressing one crisis, we are working to solve all three. Through inspiring stories and startling facts, Frances helps us realize our own power to generate a new story as we tackle these root causes with exhilarating, courageous action—together.

A Sense of Wonder Banner

When pioneering environmentalist Rachel Carson published "Silent Spring" in 1962, the backlash from her critics thrust her into the center of a political maelstrom. Despite her private persona, her convictions about the risks posed by chemical pesticides forced her into the role of controversial public figure.Using many of Miss Carson's own words, actress Kaiulani Lee embodies this extraordinary woman in a documentary style film which depicts Carson in the final year of her life. Struggling with cancer, Carson recounts with both humor and anger the attacks by the chemical industry, the government and the press as she focuses her limited energy to get her message to Congress and the American people.

Racing Extinction

Tuesday, August 24, 2021
Racing Extinction Banner

In Racing Extinction, a team of artists and activists exposes the hidden world of extinction with never-before-seen images that will change the way we see the planet. Two worlds drive extinction across the globe, potentially resulting in the loss of half of all species. The international wildlife trade creates bogus markets at the expense of creatures that have survived on this planet for millions of years. And the other surrounds us, hiding in plain sight — a world that the oil and gas companies don’t want the rest of us to see. Using covert tactics and state-of-the-art technology, the Racing Extinction team exposes these two worlds in an inspiring affirmation to preserve life as we know it. From the Academy Award® Winning Filmmakers of “The Cove”.

Kat Wright – Community Heroes Concert

Friday, August 27, 2021 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
East End Park, 217 Maxham Meadow Way
Woodstock, VT 05031 United States
Kat Wright

Kat Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse”. Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There’s soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music’s sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache’s apology. It’s funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little … like it should.
