How Do We Define 'Home'?

November 21, 2017

The average restless American will move 11 times in their life. Studies show the very idea of home resonates with our deepest emotions. But what makes a home? And do the memories of our experiences at home influence who we become? We explore the theme, definition, cultural significance and media portrayals of home through two new books: "This is Where You Belong: Finding Home Wherever You Are" by Melody Warnick, and "This Is The Place: Women Writing About Home," edited by Margot Kahn and Kelly McMasters.
