A River in a Drought Is Still a River: On Not Running

10.00

In turns funny, reflective, and moving, “A River in a Drought Is Still a River: On Not Running” follows Dani Couture’s eight years as runner, from the day she took up the hobby to the months when a series of injuries forced her to stop — at least temporarily. In the essay, Dani discusses how the practice of running — and the sudden cessation of that practice — affected her creative life, as it's affected so many others.

This chapbook is a hand-made, limited edition publication. Only 100 have been bound. Each is twenty-four pages in length, and features interior black and white images.
