Sinister Wisdom Event Includes Reading by Wanderground Instigator
About this event
On January 17, 2023, the contributors of Sinister Wisdom 127 will gather to engage in conversation about the theme of and read from Sinister Wisdom 127: On Transfer. In this volume, Susannah Magers posits that a component essential to a successful transfer is trust. The poems, art, stories, and conversations in Sinister Wisdom 127: On Transfer invite readers to entrust in the tides of transformation, to believe in the power of ourselves, our loved ones, and the power of change as buoys to a radically connected, liberated world. Join us to ponder the ways our identities and views shift and morph over time, transferring into us new understandings of ourselves, our communities, and the worlds around us.
Mev Miller, Instigator/Lesbrarian of Wanderground, will be reading from her article “Cherishing/Guarding Lesbiana: A Movement of Words on a Page” and providing updates on Wanderground.

COMING SOON – We will be developing a series of Pop-Up events in the Spring of 2023. We will take some items from our collection to display in various locations around New England. Watch for a piece of Wanderground coming your way soon!
