Come check out the book release for Maps to the Other Side with author Sascha Altman DuBrul of the Icarus Project (aka Sascha Scatter of Choking Victim) along with Icarus co-founder Jacks McNamara...
In this evening of readings, discussion, and art, we'll investigate creativity as a tool for survival and liberation. Icarus Project co-founders Jacks McNamara and Sascha DuBrul will offer readings from their new books and selections from The Icarus Project's 10 year anniversary art show.
Sascha's collection of adventure stories, "Maps to the Other Side: The Adventures of a Bipolar Cartographer," documents one person’s odyssey to transform his experiences navigating the psychiatric system by building community in the face of adversity. It offers a set of maps for how rebels and dreamers can survive and thrive in a crazy world. http://microcosmpublishing.com/catalog/books/3648
Jacks' first collection of poetry, "Inbetweenland," maps out radical trajectories through loss, madness, and queer desire to bear unflinching witness to a rarely charted geography of insurrection and grace. http://www.ashley-mcnamara.net/content/inbetweenland.
