Between the Covers: Rebellious Mourning

AK Press received its shipment today of my edited anthology Rebellious Mourning: The Collective Work of Grief, and not only shared this photo on Instagram but these words too: “I am literally blown away by how beautiful this book is. inside and out.” This AK collective member also added: “Now shipping!” As in: https://www.akpress.org/rebellious-mourning.html.

So what’s inside, you ask, besides a beautiful design? Beautiful yet bittersweet first-person and/or frontline stories. Below you’ll find a list of the titles, along with the names of the thirty-seven contributors:
