StoryCorps is a national oral history project whose mission is to provide people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, preserve, and share their stories. Anyone is invited to make an appointment to come into the StoryBooth to record a conversation with a family member, friend, colleague or loved one. Each recording is free of charge, lasts for 40 minutes, and participants are talk about whatever they want, in any language they wish. At the end of the recording, participants can choose to have their conversation archived at the Library of Congress in Washington DC.
Each week, millions listen to StoryCorps' award-winning broadcasts on NPR's Morning Edition. StoryCorps has published three books that are New York Times best sellers: Listening Is an Act of Love, Mom: A Celebration of Mothers from StoryCorps, and All There Is: Love Stories from StoryCorps. Its fourth book, Ties That Bind: Stories of Love & Gratitude from the First Ten Years of StoryCorps, was released in October 2013.
