Regina Robertson & contributors present and sign He Never Came Home: Interviews, Stories, and Essays from Daughters on Life Without Their Fathers
In conversation with Yvonne Villarreal from the L.A. Times, and book cover designer, Calida Garcia Rawles
He Never Came Home is a collection of 22 personal essays written by girls and women who have been separated from their fathers by way of divorce, abandonment, or death. The contributors to this collection come from a wide range of different backgrounds in terms of race, socioeconomic status, religion, and geographic location. Their essays offer deep insights into the emotions related to losing one's father, including sadness, indifference, anger, acceptance--and everything in between.
This book, edited by Essence magazine's West Coast editor Regina R. Robertson, is first and foremost an offering to young girls and women who have endured the loss of their fathers. But it also speaks to mothers who are raising girls without a father present, offering important perspective into their daughter's feelings and struggles. (Agate Bolden)
