VIRGINIA RODRIGUES -- Brazil's answer to Cesaria Evora makes a welcome appearance in support of Nos, her second Hannibal release. Her interpretations of folk spirituals are subdued, melancholic and magnificent. A former beautician and singer in church choirs, Rodrigues was encouraged to pursue a career by Caetano Veloso, who has guided her ever since. Spivey Hall (Madigan)

Literary festival
Reading a book a week, you'd still need almost six months to be fully read up for the 10th annual JEWISH BOOK FESTIVAL, kicking off this weekend at the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta NOV. 10-18. For the first year the festival is receiving funding from the Georgia Council for the Arts, which may help explain its impressive lineup of almost two dozen authors, including keynote speaker Michael Chabon, Dick Schaap of ESPN, Howard Blum and Dr. Ruth Westheimer. $15-$20 per event. Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta, 5342 Tilly Mill Road, Dunwoody. For a complete list of events, call the book fest hotline at 770-908-3485, or visit -- Tray Butler
