Gossamer Folds is a heartfelt tale of big dreams and unlikely friendships in 1986 suburban Missouri. Bored with his new home and looking for an escape from his parents’ constant arguments, vocabulary-obsessed 9-year old Tate Millikin sparks a strong bond with two of his neighbors: a Black trans woman named Gossamer and her retired English professor father, Edward. Tate finds in Gossamer and Edward what he desperately lacks from his parents: guidance, care, and respect…not to mention being introduced to all sorts of new words. But as threats to separate the group begin to mount, all while Gossamer entertains the idea of following her dreams to New York to become a Fashion Designer, Tate must accept the possibility of losing the first meaningful friendships he’s ever had.
