Listening with StoryCorps An Oral History Event

May 17 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Sunday, May 17 at 3:00 pm

Join the library for an afternoon of conversation, listening and watching. Founded by Dave Isay, StoryCorps records and preserves the voices of everyday people, one conversation at a time. We’ll be sharing stories from people of all backgrounds and beliefs gathered by StoryCorps throughout the years, some through audio recordings and others through animated shorts. Stories include a heartwarming conversation between a son with Asperger’s syndrome and his mom, two Brooklyn natives remembering how they fell in love, and a feisty grandmother regaling her family with tales from her youth. Also learn more about how you can easily record and preserve your own conversation with a loved one.
