Unchartable: An Evening of Environmental Unknowns
M. Allen Cunningham
Portland Review and The Accomplices (Entropy, CCM, and Writ Large Press) co-host Unchartable: An Evening of Environmental Unknowns. It is the nature of the human mind to seek, to touch, to understand and occupy vast unknowable terrains, but which of our daily environments resist comprehension? Our readers will present unknowable psychological landscapes, confounding emotional habitats, the shapeless environs of both speculation and perception, those territories where mind and body, physical and psychological, human and nonhuman, meet and cohabitate without reconciliation.
Also at 7:00 p.m. in the Library at Literay Arts
