Navigate the space between brilliance and madness: Book release and readings.

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.

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.

Free Event. 21+ only. Reserved seating for up to 20 meetups provided. Doors at 6 for those who want to come early for happy hour and mix/mingle. Or, feel free to sit where you want and just enjoy what promises to be a very interesting evening.

    Holy crap, batman. What I heard come out of their mouths tonight was the equivalent of every single song that has ever given me goosebumps. Never have I heard memory and emotion shared that resonated with me like these.
