Words in Transit

Words in Transit

Words in Transit is an oral history project featuring the stories of people who have made western New England their new home.
Words in Transit

New England Public Radio and Amherst College’s Copeland Colloquium have collected the personal stories of nearly 30 people from around the world who have made their new home in western New England.

Words in Transit

Traversing continents and cultures, the project illuminates the many pathways leading to our small corner of the globe, and explores the shared experience among those seeking a new life in a foreign land.

Now these stories have been gathered together in a beautifully designed bookthat showcases Beth Reynolds’s photographic portraits of each immigrant. Proceeds from this book go to scholarships for immigrant students at Holyoke Community College.
