Just prior to pulling out of Charleston, WV, fellow facilitators Nora Levine and Brett Myers said their goodbyes. Together we had a great run and were the first facilitators to take to the open road with the StoryCorps MobileBooth East. Nora will return to StoryCorps’ New York City booths, and Brett will continue on the road for a total of three months. We were a great team!
On our last night in Charleston, we visited the home of participant Henry Elden. As the architect, there were no trees cut down or excavation. The weather was calm when we visited, but Henry has watched many storms from his living room.
Cora (waiting for her mom and grandpa to come out of the booth) and Bonita (waiting to go in) relax outside the booth in Charleston, West Virginia.
Our new spot in Charleston, West Virginia is snug on the Capitol grounds. The dome is temporarily sheathed, a la Christo.
