SummaryJoin us to hear Margot Kahn discuss her new book "This Is the Place: Women Writing About Home"—a collection of 30 personal essays by women about homemaking, homelessness, immigration, family, and more.
DescriptionKahn will describe the making of the book co-edited with Kelly McMasters, share about her essay in the book, and discuss some of the central themes. Great for book clubs who have or are planning to read the book, or for anyone who ponders the complicated physical and emotional spaces of home. The New York Times Book Review said this collection, "encompassing a spectrum of races, ethnicities, religions, sexualities, political beliefs and classes, could not be timelier. ...open this book, hear its chorus of voices and remember that we are a nation of individuals, bound to each other by our humanity."
