Book Launch: Joshua Marie Wilkinson & Tim Rutili
Saturday, April 24, 7pm
213 N. Morgan, #3C

Sidebrow Books and Ebersmoore Gallery invite you to a launch celebration of Joshua Marie Wilkinson’s Selenography, featuring full-color Polaroids by Califone’s Tim Rutili.

The event will take place on Saturday, April 24, at 7pm, in conjunction with Alexis Anne Mackenzie’s exhibition at Ebersmoore Gallery in Chicago. Alexis’ collages are featured alongside Sandy Florian’s poetry in On Wonderland & Waste, also recently released by Sidebrow Books.

Joshua Marie Wilkinson’s Selenography finds words in want of their own life to chart an adumbrated landscape, “a good song played // too patchily / to keep / in your lungs.” Side by side with 48 full-color Polaroids taken by Tim Rutili over the past 20 years touring with his various rock bands, these poems traverse thought and image, object and vestige, contingency and intention, likening the haunted drift through this sounding of words to a river, “easy incomplete but it / took us / like twigs.”
