StoryCorps, a new initiative to record the nation's stories in sound, is coming to Wichita Monday, Oct. 19 – Sunday, Nov. 15.
The event is an opportunity for communities in south-central Kansas to be part of the largest oral history project in the United States.
In anticipation of the event, there will be a planning meeting for community groups that want to take part at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 6, in 107 Devlin Hall on the Wichita State campus.
RSVP by calling (316) 978-6789 or go to email@example.com.
StoryCorps is sponsored by National Public Radio, KMUW 89.1 and affiliated with the Library of Congress. It was established to create an oral history of regular citizens, allowing everyday people to preserve personal stories for their own families and for future generations to hear.
Participants reserve an hour-long recording session at the traveling StoryBooth to interview someone they know – loved ones, friends or members of their community. At the end of the session, the participants receive a CD copy to take
home, and, with their permission, another copy is archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
