Please reserve your ticket to join us for a virtual reading and release of bookstore and publishing press The Head & The Hand’s latest slate of stories from the Shockwire Chapbooks Series!
On August 5, 2020 at 7 p.m. through Zoom, we will be celebrating the five authors and their chapbooks of our 2019/2020 edition of Shockwire: Osimiri Sprowal’s Gemini – Duality of Self, Dena Igusti’s Growth Response, Gemma Cooper-Novack’s Bedside Manner, Jeffrey S. Markovitz’s US VS, and Joe Baumann’s Terrarium. Each author will be reading from their respected chapbooks to celebrate the release of the series.
We at The Head & The Hand have made it our mission to publish writing that has the power to spark change and entertain. Our Shockwire series, first published in 2018, has served to amplify storytelling that pushes us towards a deeper understanding of ourselves in a world where marginalization is silencing. These stories, collected in chapbook form, each have their own central themes – from existing as a multi-gendered transgender person in a binary society to the inter-generational trauma of female genital mutilation in Indonesia, from the wide-reaching interpersonal effects we all have on one another to deep-seeded, almost universal parent-child strife to the blurred lines of truth, fantasy, and authentic connection – that connect readers not only to the individual but to the society that encompasses us. We hope you join us in our appreciation for these authors and their stories.
