AMERICAN GUIDE WEEK - NOVEMBER 18-24, 2013
We’re just a little over one week away from #AmericanGuideWeek! The Valley News from New Hampshire/Vermont says you should join in, so what are you waiting for?
BE A GUIDE. SHOW AMERICA TO AMERICANS.
Between Monday, Nov. 18, and Sunday, Nov. 24, tag your Tumblr photos, illustrations and writing that describe the America you live in and the America you travel through — people, places and things. This is a collaboration, folks: a living, Tumblifying documentary about the USA. You’ll be reblogged or featured on The American Guide.
YOUR ASSIGNMENT, TRUSTED GUIDE:
Your A/G editors unearthed the actual mimeographed manual that the WPA sent out to each state research office in charge of producing the original guidebooks.
So, stay tuned all next week as we release the top 10 “how to be a WPA Guide” instructions — to use as your guide for #AmericanGuideWeek.
