Margot Kahn, Kelly McMasters & Friends
Home is a loaded word, a complex idea: it’s a place that can be comforting, difficult, nourishing, war-torn, or political. In This is the Place: Women Writing About Home (Seal Press), edited by Margot Kahn and Kelly McMasters, 30 women writers explore the theme in personal essays about neighbors, marriage, kids, sentimental objects, homelessness, domestic violence, solitude, immigration, gentrification, geography, and more. Engaging, insightful, and full of hope, This Is the Place will make you laugh, cry, and think hard about home, wherever you may find it.
Joining us tonight are the editors and some of the local contributors, including Claudia Castro Luna, Tara Conklin, Elisabeth Eaves, Kate Lebo, Jane Wong & Maya Zeller.
