Harper Horizon's first two titles, appearing this fall, exemplify the imprint's approach. In Make Life Beautiful by Syd and Shea McGee (October 27), the couple who run Studio McGee, the renowned design studio, share insights and wisdom on how classic interior design principles can be used to build an authentically beautiful life. They tell of the challenges and struggles they faced as they transformed Shea's small room of fabric samples into one of the fastest-growing design studios in the country. Inspirational topics to help readers build an authentic life include renovating one's life, visualizing the outcome and listening to one's gut, and elevating the everyday. The McGees have a huge social media presence and have been widely written about; a fall 2020 Netflix docuseries will coincide with the book launch.
In Walk Through This: Harness the Healing Power of Nature and Travel the Road to Forgiveness (November 10), life and leadership coach and wilderness guide Sara Schulting Kranz gives readers tools to develop the courage they need to overcome setbacks, to forgive and to heal, and to build a life of fulfillment and purpose. Kranz's step-by-step handbook shows how to reconnect with nature--wherever readers may be--and begin their healing journey. The book includes foundational information about nature deficit disorder and the negative impact it has on our minds and bodies; exercise prompts that help evaluate where one is on the path and check progress along the way; and meditations to guide the reader deeper into the process. Kranz is the host and founder of the Live Boldly podcast, a featured TEDx Talk speaker, and the subject of a documentary by Laura VanZee Taylor that will be released this year.
