The StoryCorps mobile recording booth is returning to Sacramento September 10th through October 9th!  Information about your opportunity to sign up will be here soon. 

StoryCorps mobile booth interviews are conducted between two people who know and care about each other. A trained StoryCorps facilitator guides participants through the interview process. At the end of each 40-minute recording session, participants receive a complimentary CD copy of their interview. With participant permission, a second copy is archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress for future generations to hear.

Capital Public Radio will produce a series of these interviews -- in a format similar to those produced for NPR -- called Sacramento StoryCorps, airing later this fall.

The StoryCorps Airstream trailer previously stopped in Sacramento in 2008.  Here are stories from that first visit hosted by Capital Public Radio.
