@ Unitarian Church, 130 Main St Montpelier

Join legendary author Julia Alvarez in conversation with Vermont author Ann Davila Cardinal to celebrate Alvarez's new novel, "The Cemetery of Untold Stories" and delve into the power of stories, both told and untold. In her review, Bear Pond's Claire Benedict says "When author Alma Cruz tries to literally bury her untold stories, the stories come to life and speak to visitors, to each other, to anyone who will listen to remind of us the power and necessity of storytelling in our lives. This book is a gem of imagination and craft." This event will be held in the second floor sanctuary of the Unitarian Church. The church's elevator is out of service since July's flood. Access will be by stairs only. We apologize for any inconvenience. JULIA ALVAREZ left the Dominican Republic for the United States in 1960 at the age of ten. She is the author of six novels, three books of nonfiction, three collections of poetry, and eleven books for children and young adults. ANN DÁVILA CARDINAL is a writer and the former Director of Recruitment for Vermont College of Fine Arts where she earned her MFA in Writing.

Film - In the Name of the Forgotten Women

Monday Apr 22nd 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm
@ Savoy Theater

In the Name of Forgotten Woman is a ceremony to restore the Feminine in the world. In the tradition of Ntozake Shange’s for colored girls who have considered suicide/ when the rainbow is enuf, this multimedia “choreopoem” dramatizes poetry with music, dance, ritual, and projection. Through the individual and collective voices of women representing each continent, this innovative work explores the plight of Woman—as bride, wife, mother, and daughter—in over 15 countries around the globe. Inspired by real-life incidents spanning the last four centuries, In the Name of Forgotten Women dramatizes the war waged on women’s bodies and freedom, and their indomitable will to survive.
