It's Coming!!!

If you live anywhere near Salt Lake City, you're going to want to take advantage of the opportunity to visit the StoryCorps booth with someone you love.  Whether it's their story you want to hear, or a story of your own that wants telling, the StoryCorps soundproofed recording booth is a wonderful place to do it.  The booth is private and intimate.  There are two chairs and a small table with a single lamp and a microphone.  The cozy booth is designed to create an atmosphere where you can forget the microphone and simply share your story--whatever that story might be.  Worried that you may not know how to begin?  They'll provide you with some questions you may want to consider asking.  (Here's an example:  I just found this beautiful StoryCorps story this morning. It's the recording from a father's visit to a StoryCorps booth with his daughter.)
After you've finished sharing your story, two high-quality CD's of that story will be created: One for you to keep and one to be archived in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
The traveling booth will be in Salt Lake from March 26 through May 2, 2009.  For more information and to register, click here.
