Gem and Tanyss Munro, along with their four children, travel to the poorest neighbourhoods of Bangladesh and teach mothers to become neighbourhood teachers.

Gem Munro has written a book of true short stories, South Asian Adventures With The Active Poor, recounting the extraordinary events that allowed them access to neighbourhoods and a look into the lives of the women and men who live in some of the poorest slums in the world.

The Munros will be at the Edmonton Library, main branch, at 7 tonight for a book reading, video clips, photos and discussion.
