Inspired by this year’s One Read selection, we invited mid-Missouri artists to contribute works that explore the objects or relationships in our connected, complex and electrified world we’d yearn for most if they were lost to us. If the world were changed by sudden catastrophe – no electricity, medicine, Internet, transportation – what would you miss most? View this exhibit August 31-September 26, and join us for a reception and program on September 15 at 6:30 p.m. (See www.orrstreetstudios.com for gallery hours.)
89.5 KOPN and DBRL present an evening of free music to kick off this year's One Read program. The world of "Station Eleven" is postapocalyptic, unplugged and off the grid. Join local musicians as they play short sets with no amplification for this One Read edition of the Ramblers' Club. Special guest A.J. Gaither, One Man Band will share his DIY instruments, handmade from cigar boxes and scrap parts, pulled straight from the wreckage of civilization. (Doors open at 6 p.m.) Find out more at: http://dbrl.me/h8.
We'll kick off our month of One Read programs by discussing "Station Eleven" with George Hodgman, the author of "Bettyville." Mr. Hodgman, a former book editor, will share his insights about this year's One Read novel and lead an informal discussion.
Can art and design become one? With this graphic design exhibition, Kate Gray examines the dual selves required to be an artist and designer, a learner and a student.

Her show will run Sept. 3-27. Regular gallery hours are Wed. Noon-1 p.m., Thu. 5:30-8:30 p.m., Sat. & Sun. Noon-3 p.m. On Thu., September 17, the exhibit opens at 5 p.m. as a part of the reception for the One Read discussion on "The Intersection of Art and Society."
Join us as Daniel Regional Library Board member Julie Baka leads us in a discussion of "Station Eleven." Bring a sack lunch if you wish!
This year's author visit comes earlier in the program. Don't miss this chance to hear Emily St. John Mandel speak about her novel "Station Eleven." After her remarks, she will answer questions from the audience and sign copies of her book. There will be a live videoconference of the talk at William Woods University Library in Fulton, and it will also be broadcast on KOPN 89.5FM radio.
MU's Museum of Art and Archaeology presents a film that, like this year's One Read title, follows a touring Shakespearean theater troupe. Set in WWII, the story focuses on the dresser who is devoted to the brilliant but tyrannical head of the company. As the backstage hand struggles to support the deteriorating star, the company struggles to carry on during the London blitz. Directed by Peter Yates and starring Tom Courtenay and Albert Finney. (Rated PG, 1983)
