Hilde Aagaard’s Homecoming explores the contemporary perception of HomeComing, "home" being viewed as a place or an idea. Hilde Aagaard's idea resulted to a selection of essays and images by thirty three participants-homecomers, coming from different places, different times and different cultural backgrounds. Artists, authors, poets, performers, children, architects, educators, a composer,a curator, a psychiatrist, a nun, a nurse, a theatre director and a librarian shared their homecomings, making their own contribution to the book.

The term home is used with multiple meanings: homeland, warmth, resort, death, return; the return to one's self, resulting to a new beginning. A highly figurative book, which brings to memory a lot of unspoken and deep thoughts. HomeComing "cultivates" its theme from the experiences of its participants; although not ours, can be easily identifiable to all.
