'StoryCorps' Is Coming Back To Vermont

As part of its cross-country MobileBooth tour, StoryCorps is coming back to Burlington! The MobileBooth — an Airstream trailer outfitted with a recording studio — will be parked at the Burlington Waterfront right outside of the ECHO Center August 4 through September 2 to collect stories from Vermonters like you!

Updated 8/15/16 Although all of the recording sessions scheduled for August are filled you can still take part in the project using the StoryCorps app!  Download it here. Need help getting started? Check out these tips for recording a great interview here.

STAY TUNED TO VPR. Next Monday, August 22 at 8:44 a.m. we'll broadcast one of the first Vermont stories recorded in Burlington.

StoryCorps’ mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world to remind one another of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters.

Do you have a loved one who has a special story that should be preserved? A recording session with StoryCorps will give you the opportunity to interview him or her, and that interview will be archived at the Library of Congress.
