Collect a Story
Watch this animated video of the origin of Story Corp together with your children. Talk about which family members or friends you’d like to get to know better; then ask if you can interview them. You can record your conversations from anywhere using the Story Corp App or Story Corp Connect. Prepare ahead of time with 6-8 questions that you (or your child) would like to ask. (Here’s a list of some to consider.) You can choose to have it archived at the Library of Congress – or you can keep it private. After your conversation, share what you learned, what surprised you most – and then make plans to interview another loved one whose story you’d like to hear.
