Home: A Celebration: Notable Voices Reflect on the Meaning of Home
Celebrated artists, designers, photographers, writers, actors, and activists offer personal reflections on the essence of home in this inspirational book to benefit No Kid Hungry. Filled with personal insight, humor, creativity, joy, and poignancy, Home: A Celebration is a lyrical ode to the sanctuary and a thoughtful and inspirational book to peruse again and again. Through the lenses of their crafts and passions, each illustrious contributor presents an offering--either a personal text or work of art--on what home means to them.
Historian Jon Meacham discusses books as the emotional infrastructure of the houses in his life. Photographer Oberto Gili documents the glorious garden at his property in northwest Italy. Chef Alice Waters proffers a recipe from her home garden. Interior designers--including Nina Campbell, Steven Gambrel, and Kelly Wearstler--share aspects of their profession that define home to them. Other notable pieces are from Joan Juliet Buck, Julian Fellowes, John Grisham, Jill Kargman, Joyce Carol Oates, and Gloria Steinem. Charlotte Moss's inspiration for this project is Edith Wharton's The Book of the Homeless (1916), a fundraising effort that aided refugees and children during the First World War.
