published with Old Growth Press

A walk home on a rainy day with hands full of heavy groceries, the way the birds settle in the schoolyard. A family in a restaurant.

From Yesterday is a publication released with Old Growth Press for their Summer 2019 launch. Through the retelling of mundane, but fleeting moments from childhood, From Yesterday features the progression of a year growing up in Winnipeg. There is no clear beginning, middle, or end, but rather an emotional progression that relies on memories.

Old Growth Press is a Toronto based small press dedicated to publishing the artistic efforts of BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ youth on this land. Run by Cleopatria Peterson and Terry Abrahams, Old Growth Press seeks to practice as environmentally sustainable as possible. By using acid free paper that is not sourced from old growth forests, and recycled binding material, they hope to lessen their impact.  From Yesterday is a part of Old Growth Press’ Queer Pastoral series, read the full statement here and interviews with the artists here.

The publication can be purchased at Page & Panel, the Beguiling, Another Story Bookstore, or directly from Old Growth Press' online shop.
