StoryCorps Arrives in Fort Myers

It's a project that has collected, shared, and preserved people’s stories across the United States. For the next month, from Jan. 5 through Feb. 3, StoryCorps and its mobile recording studio StoryBooth will be in Fort Myers.

The non-profit has interviewed more than 100,000 people in all 50 states, creating more than 60,000 interviews, all of which are archived at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.

Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. on Gulf Coast Live, StoryCorps site manager Stacey Todd explains the StoryCorps project, and how you can participate to share your story. She'll also share some StoryCorps recordings from past visits to Florida.

Reservations for the StoryBooth in Fort Myers can be made online. More about StoryCorps' visit to Southwest Florida  can be found at WGCU's StoryCorps listening event on Thursday, Jan. 19.

Matthew Smith is a reporter and producer of WGCU’s Gulf Coast Live.
