Overview

In Nightlight for Children of Insomniacs Shannon Quinn explores the legacies that animate, agitate, and echo over time through families. It is an investigation of how myth responds to trauma, of how we love, how we hurt, and how we recover. Quinn engages with the possibility that in the absence of light we can summon our own profound and deeply personal magic. Nightlight for Children of Insomniacs is for those who suspect there must be a guidebook for living but fear they are the only ones who haven't read it.
