Preorder and ToC

Preorders for Almanac for the Anthropocene: A Compendium of Solarpunk Futures is live! I’m so excited to be getting this book into everyone’s hands. When Brontë and I started working on the proposal for this anthology in fall of 2018, we weren’t expecting for the bulk of the work to take place during 2020 and beyond. While this has been a painful time, we’ve also learned a lot and hope this collection of different voices can inspire hope, action, and change.

You can preorder the collection here:

Cover of Almanac for the Anthropocene, with bright colors, a cabin, and a brushy garden.

I’m also happy to share the full table of contents! So many great writers and thinkers have come together in this collection, and I hope that every reader will be inspired by multiple pieces. I’ll be releasing some of my favorite quotes leading up to the release on my Twitter (@pheebs_w) and Instagram (@pheebzw).
