On September 13, 2008, StoryCorps Facilitators Martha O’Brien, Kate Wingate, and Cindy Murphy recorded and archived their final interview at the Nashville StoryBooth.
Located in the Nashville Public Library‘s Banner Room, the Nashville StoryBooth has recorded nearly 500 interviews since opening in September 2007. In addition to archival at the Library of Congress, each of these interviews will also be accessible in a local archive at the Nashville Public Library.
StoryCorps would like to thank the following local sponsors for making the Nashville StoryBooth possible this year: Nashville Public Library Foundation, Bridgestone Firestone Trust Fund, Ann Patchett, Irene and Ridley Wills, and of course, the Nashville Public Library.
We’d also like to express our appreciation to Esi Arthur, James Havron, and the Nashville Public Library Special Collections Division staff for their patience and support.
Finally, thank you to all of the fabulous participants who’ve shared your stories this year. It was a privilege and an honor to be a part of such an amazing project.
Farewell, listen well, and ask great questions…
