Odyssey Storytelling-Up-coming events and THE STORY CORPS is coming to Tucson

Thursday, January 29, 2009

Break Ups and Break Downs :  Stories of the great (and small) ups and downs of life. Is it a broken heart or a car broken down on the highway?  Breaking down cultural barriers or breaking up is hard to do? Who broke up the Beatles or breaking down a task into manageable pieces? Break dancing anyone?  Curated by Sarah K Smith.

 

Thursday, March 5
5th Anniversary: The Potpourri Show 
To celebrate our 5th year, lets hear from those of you that have a story to tell that might not otherwise fit the designated themes. A medley of mix-and-match stories will be served up.

If you have a 10-minute story for either of these themes, please send me a short 1 paragraph synopsis of the story and I’ll be in touch with you. Happy Holidays and see you next year!  ~Penelope

StoryCorps is coming to Southern Arizona The StoryCorps mobile radio booth will be in Tucson December 4 – December 21 collecting stories from across our community.  StoryCorps mission is to honor and celebrate one another’s lives through listening.

StoryCorps’ mission is to honor and celebrate one another’s lives through listening. Sponsored by National Public Radio and affiliated with the Library of Congress, StoryCorps was established to create an oral history of regular citizens, allowing everyday people to preserve personal stories for their own families, and for future generations to hear. Since 2003, over 35,000 everyday people have shared life stories with family and friends in our StoryBooths. Millions listen to our broadcasts on public radio and the web. StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind.

Each conversation is recorded on a free CD to share, and is preserved at the Library of Congress. Participants reserve an hour-long recording session at the StoryBooth, where they can interview relatives, friends, or members of their community. At the end of the session, participants receive a CD to take home, and, with their permission, a copy will be archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress

To request an interview with StoryCorps go online or call 1-800-850-4406.

The StoryCorps mobile radio booth will be located at the Joel D. Valdez Main Library – Jacome Plaza ( 101 N. Stone Ave. , with parking in the library parking garage with the entrance on Alameda St. West of Stone Ave. ) from December 4 through the 21st and again from January 5 through 17. Interview times will be from 10:30 a.m. -4:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 on Saturday and Sunday.

StoryCorps airs Friday mornings on KUAZ 89.1 FM and 1550AM.
