Belonging: A Culture of Place



What does it mean to call a place home? Who is allowed to become a member of a community? When can we say that we truly belong?


These are some of the questions of place and belonging that renowned cultural critic bell hooks examines in her new book, Belonging: A Culture of Place. Traversing past and present, Belonging charts a cyclical journey in which hooks moves from place to place, from country to city and back again, only to end where she began–her old Kentucky home.
