As summer kicks into full gear, it’s a bittersweet time to bid farewell to Carl Scott and to Alex Kelly, two MobileBooth Facilitators who have become genuinely expert listeners this past year. Alex and Carl have recorded hundreds of conversations in 10 cities from the arid orchards of Wenatchee, Washington, to the muggy Spanish moss of Savannah, Georgia. We hope they’ll continue to encounter amazing stories.
The sweet side allows us to excitedly introduce and welcome Sara Culver, Alejandro de la Cruz, and Lilly Sullivan to the road. Sara, a StoryCorps veteran, has most recently worked as a coordinator for the Alaska Initiative. Alejandro comes to us from Los Angeles by way of Mexico City, where he wrote for online publications (and he’s itching to flex his typing fingers on this blog). Another Californian, Lilly comes to StoryCorps after four years in publishing, most recently at the PEN American Center in New York.
Thanks to all of you who support our efforts to keep the Mobile Tour running. Stay tuned to hear more tales from us on the road!
