One City One Story

Do you believe a picture is worth a thousand words? Marybelle does. She keeps a photo album titled Marybelle's Book of Life and Death, detailing her loved one's first and last breaths, as a way to keep a record of her family while she works abroad for the Chows, moving from the Philippines to Hong Kong to Boston. In this year's One City One Story selection,  "The Book of Life and Death," author Grace Talusan explores themes of belonging, education, family, and migration. Pick up your story at one of our distribution locations (or download a copy from our website). Then join us for a discussion of the story with its author and other readers, facilitated by Alicia Anstead, associate director for programming at Harvard’s Office for the Arts.
