-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.
In April, two days before her birthday, Cassie signed the book deal contract for her new novel, BEAVER GIRL.
The novel will be published as a collaboration between Outcast Press and Anxiety Press, two progressive, visionary and courageous publishers who are as fully committed as she is to sharing the story of how these climate change heroes can bring us and the planet back into balance in an increasingly dystopian world.
The release date is set for November 15, 2023. They are moving fast because the planet cannot wait for us to learn the code of the water way that beavers can teach.
