Today: Some people are writers. Others are writers. Joyce Carol Oates is a prolific, multiple Pulitzer Prize-nominee with a new book out. And she'll hold court at 6:30 at the downtown library.

Tuesday:
Inequality sucks, and, unfortunately, this country has a long history of it. Documented Rights, an ongoing exhibition at the National Archives, traces civil rights issues in America from slavery through the 1960s.



Wednesday: Painting on canvas or making a table-top sculpture is one thing. Using the earth itself as a medium for art is on a whole 'nother level of creativity. Hear landscape artist Stan Herd talk about shaping fields and garbage dumps into scenes of purposeful beauty. He lectures at 7 p.m. at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art.

Thursday:
Depending on your view of fashion and appropriate boss behavior, Vogue editor Anna Wintour is either a pioneering goddess or a pioneering bitch. Head to the Tivoli for a 7 p.m. screening of the documentary The September Issue for an up-close view of the she-devil who wears Prada.
