“Walking Salem” with Jim McAllister

November 30 @ 7:30 pm

On Wednesday, November 29 and Thursday, November 30, Jim McAllister will “take the stage” at the Hawthorne Hotel to share experiences, observations, photographs, and anecdotes related to his successful “Walking Salem” project. nLast April, Jim set out on foot to explore the city he has called home for nearly 45 years. Armed with the latest Salem map, a broken-in pair of work boots, and an iPhone, he began walking the streets in his own neighborhood. His ambitious plan – to walk every public way in the City of Salem by December 1 – is now in its final days. n“The experience has been an eye-opener on many levels”, says McAllister. “I discovered neighborhoods I didn’t even know existed, and streets that are so new they aren’t even on the 2015 city engineering department map. I ran across hidden ponds,  remnants of a mid-20th-century Greek monastery, a handful of ‘little free libraries’, dozens of stunning homes and gardens, interesting signs, and countless subjects worth photographing.” nThe Wednesday talk will be held at 5:30, the Thursday at 7:30.  Admission is $12, seating is limited. To make reservations contact Jim at culturecorner@gmail.com, or if needed, by text at 978.979.5907. Source: http://salem.org/event/walking-salem-jim-mcallister/2017-11-30/
