| Saturday, 2PM, galleries | "Horn Island: Live in Print" The Fall issue of Oxford American magazine chronicled our epic journey to Horn Island by canoe in print and as part of their podcast, Points South. “Live in Print” breathes life into the characters on the page and reunites a number of the castaways who spent six days camping on the wilderness island, including captain John “Driftwood” Ruskey and John Anderson – son of Walter Anderson. Pick up your copy of the magazine, participate in a discussion in the Horn Island galleries, and see the premiere of a short film produced about the journey.
