The StoryCorps is coming to offer friends and families in St.George the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of their lives.
For friends and family who want to record an interview on their own, the StoryCorps website offers free, detailed information about how to do it. However, if you would like to use their facilities when they come to St. George, they will work with you, give you a free CD of your interview, give a copy to your community, and possibly send a copy to the Library of Congress.
If you use their service, you will need to make an appointment by visiting storycorps.org or by calling 800-850-4406. According to the gentleman on their phone line (number above), there is a $50 deposit required to assure the keeping of the appointment. Participants must request the return of their deposit after the interview.
About StoryCorp (from their website) -"We do this to remind one another of our shared humanity, strengthen and build the connections between people, teach the value of listening, and weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that every life matters. At the same time, we will create an invaluable archive of American voices and wisdom for future generations."
Their Goal: "In the coming years we will build StoryCorps into an enduring institution that will touch the lives of every American family."
"StoryCorps interviews are featured every Friday on NPR’s Morning Edition. Archived interviewed stories from their long-running public radio series are available for hearing on that site.
