River / Ross Gay & Richard Wehrenberg, Jr.

5.00

Using the Jordan River in Bloomington, Indiana as a spine / guide, River forms a small map of local/personal & collective/historical erasure. Ross Gay & Richard Wehrenberg, Jr.’s stories of the rivers from their lives create interstices of illumination in the space somewhere between remembering and forgetting. Featuring hand-drawn maps & a deconstructive history of the Jordan River & early president of Indiana University David Starr Jordan, for whom the river is named, this brief, multifaceted collection pulsates with the question how do we begin to remember what was effaced? and digs at the tradition of curated forgetting in the capital-genuflecting epoch in which we are currently embedded.
