In Memory of Gregory Younging
U of R Press sends our heartfelt condolences to the friends, relatives, and colleagues of Gregory Younging, the well-respected publisher of Theytus Books and assistant professor of Indigenous Studies at UBC, who tragically passed away on May 3. We were particularly honoured to be featured in his groundbreaking book Elements of Indigenous Style, and to have benefited in many ways from his generous mentorship and advice.
The URP team also sends our love and warmth to those who worked for him in one of this land’s few Indigenous-operated publishing houses. Indigenizing the publishing world is modelled through his book, which is an essential resource for all editors and writers who work with literature written by and about Indigenous peoples.
We will truly miss Greg's talent, knowledge, and presence at upcoming publishing events.
