Every place--from grand public building to old barn, from porch to kitchen to attic to church pew or back stair--- every place holds a story . . . the story of who lived here and how we spent our hours and days. Places tell us who we are, who we were, what we lived and died for. Through music, words, voice, folk art and visual imagery, Family SecretsKith and Kin reveals how places are resonant with beauty as well as mystery and explores how secrets, both big and small, define ourselves, our families, and a sense of place.
