Please join Partners and Son to celebrate the release of Kate Schneider’s new book, Headland! Customers will be asked to wear masks in the store, in the line, and when they approach the signing table, and to maintain social distance while in line.
In Headland, artist Kate Schneider pays tribute to her departed grandmother, presenting with deeply felt empathy a perspective little represented in popular literature. Drawn with soft pencils and lush colors, this graphic novel explores the tensions between safety and autonomy, language and silence, holding on and letting go.
“It can be so difficult, so terrifying, really, to witness and wonder about and honor someone’s fundamental solitude. To regard our solitudes as wonders. Kate Schneider’s Headland is precisely that — a lyric wonder about a beloved’s deepest solitude — that feels as loving, as beloving, as true, as almost anything I’ve ever read. This is a beautiful book.” — Ross Gay (The Book of Delights)
