Story Corps in Denver

If you don’t already know, Story Corps is a project dedicated to celebrating human life through story sharing and listening. This project enables willing participates to step into a Story Corps booth to record memories from their life. The participant is then given one of two copies of their recoded accounts. The other copy is archived in the Library of Congress for future generations.

Lucky for me and every other Denver resident, the Story Corps mobile booth is here today and accepting reservation for recording sessions tomorrow at 10 am. I am so excited for this experience, I can’t wait.

I love the fact that everyone has a history that matters and everyone is important. You can participate even if there is not a Story Corps near you, just go to their website to find out how.

Hi Natalia,

Thank you for posting about StoryCorps’ MobileBooth stop here! Our MobileTeam was wowed by Denver’s hospitality, and honored to witness the many wonderful stories that Colorado residents shared in our Airstream Trailer. We are so glad you’ve joined StoryCorps’ ever-growing list of interview participants!

After taking a look at your blog, I thought you might be interested in our upcoming paperback book tour. Dave Isay, the founder of StoryCorps, has compiled some of the most moving stories into Listening is an Act of Love, and will be at Boulder Bookstore on October 28 to answer questions and share stories from the book. You can read more about Listening in an Act of Love and get the details about the book tour events at http://www.storycorps.net/book/book-tour.

Thanks again for helping us spread the word! We hope to see you there.
