StoryCorps is in Denver - Record Your Story!
StoryCorps is a national oral history project that encourages us to listen to each other by sharing the stories of our lives with the people we love. Their mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve these stories by recording high-quality interviews between friends or family.
StoryCorps has recording studios in New York, San Francisco, and Atlanta and travels across the country in their mobile studio-- a decked-out Airstream trailer. To date, they have already collected and archived more than 30,000 interviews from more than 60,000 participants. It is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind!
The StoryCorps mobile booth, presented by KGNU 88.5 FM/1390 AM will be in Denver from October 6 – November 5, 2011 and will be parked on the plaza outside of the Central Library (in-between DPL and Denver Art Museum).
This is such a wonderful program and we encourage everyone to come on down to the Central Library, record your story and become a part of American history!
Participants take home a CD of their recorded interview; have a copy archived at the Library of Congress; and the opportunity to be featured on National Public Radio. Select stories will also be broadcasted locally on KGNU 88.5 FM/1390 AM.

The Central Library will close early at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 10 to prepare for the Booklovers Ball. More...
