For the Book Club, we wanted to create a program that paralleled the narrative structure of Saunders’ book. We invited contributors from across the globe to post weekly commentaries that shared insight into the global process of urban migration, from a personal and geographically specific point of view that spoke to their work and experience and ideas.
We asked Book Club members to share the sights of their cities by creating photowalks that tell a visual stories about their neighbourhood, the people that live there, and the history of arrival and movement in this place. By using StoryMap JS, Book Club members have given us a peek into their neighbourhood using photos and brief descriptions tied to map locations. Here’s what we have received from readers so far.
