KY Live! with Morgan Atkinson

Wonder: The Lives of Anna and Harlan Hubbard

Anna and Harlan Hubbard led their lives as few people in modern times have – representing the pioneers of sustainability. Living in a house they built, sustained by food they raised or caught, supported by no electricity, the Hubbards, found their way without modern conveniences.

Morgan Atkinson, writer and producer of Wonder, lives in Louisville, KY, and has been recognized for his work documenting the philosopher/monk Thomas Merton, the writer/social activist John Howard Griffen and many more in the 25 years of his career.

This presentation by Mr. Atkinson will be a 20 minute preview of the new film Wonder first premiering in November.  The narrative and art is from the Hubbard’s journals, and will be accompanied by excerpts from Wendell Berry’s book on their lives.  Will Oldham and Katie Weible will be the voices of Harlan and Anna.  Soundtrack by: Ray Lamontagne.

Please join us September 27th, 7:00pm at the Kentucky Building for this event. This will be a swipeable event.
