Tonight, November 24, StoryCorps, one of the largest oral history projects of its kind, will be hosting a book reading at the Court Street Barnes and Noble in Brooklyn at 7:00 PM.
Events at Suffolk Community College and the New York City Tenement Museum will follow in the next few weeks. Tens of thousands of everyday Americans have interviewed their loved ones through StoryCorps. "Listening Is An Act of Love" is a compilation of some of the most remarkable stories, arranged thematically to form a moving portrait of American life.
At these events, Dave Isay, legendary radio producer and founder of StoryCorps, will be answering questions and sharing some of these stories.For more information about “Listening Is an Act of Love” and the book tour event, please visit http://www.storycorps.net/book/book-tour.
