Writer Sylvan Oswald shares text from High Winds, his collaboration with graphic designer Jessica Fleischmann which was published by X Artists' Books in 2017 at Otherwild from 6:30-9pm on Wednesday, September 12th.

High Winds follows a trans man with insomnia whose twilight journey in search of his estranged half-brother morphs into a meditation on masculinity, anxiety and artmaking. For this Otherwild event, Oswald will perform new material from his theatrical adaptation of the book. 

7pm book reading + Q&A
