This is the first day of the rest of your life.

Welcome to H.A.G.S., a newsletter about yearbooks. My name is Brooks, and I’m a writer, artist, yearbook enthusiast, and nostalgia junkie. Join me this summer as I collect, dissect, and overanalyze the cultural lore surrounding American adolescence through the lens of the high school yearbook. Let’s explore the years we try our best to forget: our teens.
