CROWDFUNDING
AUTHOR : BARBARA PEACOCK

After seven years of work, Barbara Peacock is ready to publish “American Bedroom,” a book in which she portrays Americans in their bedrooms. She has traveled all over the country and has managed to capture people in an intimate and almost confessional manner. What she presents us with are a collection of short stories that depict who these people are, creating a map of the diversities that make up the United States.

‘“Dismantle and rebuild (the urge to destroy is a creative urge, a natural reset) build a home in you, a home in me. Together home is always growing, always being redefined-dismantled, and rebuilt. We see each other, we make space for each other. And here, we are always safe inside.”
