StoryCorps in Chicago

StoryCorps is an independent nonprofit whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 40,000 interviews from nearly 80,000 participants. Visiting Chicago in 2005 and again in 2007, presented here are our favorites from those visits. 

StoryCorps' MobileBooth is returning to Chicago, August 16 - September 15, 2012. Make a reservation for you and your loved one!
