About the Book
The Neighborhood Story Project is a community documentary program in New Orleans, Louisiana. Based out of John McDonogh Senior High, we teach high school students how to write books about their neighborhoods. Through creative non-fiction, photography, and in-depth interviews, they then create detailed portraits of their communities. In June of 2005, we published five books that looked at the city from different vantage points. These books were celebrated with block parties in the neighborhoods and were the second best selling books at independent bookstores in New Orleans before Hurricane Katrina. In the aftermath of the destruction, we are in the process of re-envisioning our work and our city.
