At the Waterline (Ooligan Press)
Thursday, August 10 at 7pm

One windy night on the Willamette River, a young man with romantic notions of a sailing life crashes his boat into a railroad bridge, nearly killing his wife. Haunted by the incident, he tries to leave the river and its memories behind, only to be drawn back years later. At the Waterline challenges the idealistic norms of Pacific Northwest life with a portrayal of one houseboat community's contentious history and its hard earned acceptance of unfamiliar faces.
