-from Earth Joy Writing by Cassie Premo Steele
When I was in my mid-twenties, I was part of a women’s group that met once a month in the evenings to discuss readings about politics, the environment, religion, women’s health, and our emotional lives.
It was not the first women’s group I was ever in, nor was it the last, but it was very special because of its diversity—women from twenty-one to sixty-one, from different backgrounds, regions, religions, races, and classes.
Cassie's new novel, BEAVER GIRL, is available now!
BEAVER GIRL takes place after major climate collapse and is told through two alternating points of view: Livia, a 19-year-old survivor of sexual assault, and Chap, the father of a growing beaver family surviving deep within the Congaree National Park.
Also at Congaree National Park, Cassie leads seasonal Forest Wellness Journaling Workshops based on her book, EARTH JOY WRITING, available in the Harry Hampton Visitors Center. The next one is scheduled for Saturday, April 27 from 10 AM-12 PM. The workshop is free and includes the gift of a Congaree-themed journal and pen set, but space is limited and registration is required.
