May 16th, 2024

Carly Butler’s childhood in 1990s Montana was marked by a lively imagination and a strong, independent mother, DJ. They engaged in local projects and church activities until Y2K fears and Evangelical Christian predictions led them to flee to the Canadian wilderness. Isolated and preparing for doomsday, Butler and DJ lived without electricity, chopping wood and practicing survivalist skills. As the anticipated apocalypse never materialized, Butler faced a tumultuous upbringing filled with conspiracy theories and religious doctrine. Apocalypse Child: Surviving Doomsday and the Search for Identity at the End of the World (Caitlin $24.95) is a memoir of resilience, exploring Butler’s journey from isolation to self-discovery, grappling with her queer, Mexican-Indigenous identity, and seeking connection in adulthood. 9781773861326
