On to the Sunny Sunshine State

Posted on Friday, January 11th, 2008.

Facilitators Soo Na Pak and Jenna Weiss-Berman recently rolled into Orlando, Florida with StoryCorps’ MobileBooth East, where they were shocked and awed when they looked at the thermometer on their rear-view mirror (see for yourself below!).



They parked the booth in front of the Orlando Public Library in downtown Orlando, where StoryCorps will be recording stories with local NPR station WMFE for the entire month of January.

  • What a wonderful experience! I came out with my son to listen to how this project got started, which has been bringing me joy every Friday mornings (WMFE, 90.7, 8:20 am) for months now. I purchased a book and a CD to support this incredibly valuable work.

    Each story reminded me so much of sitting at my grandmother’s knee listening to her stories when I was a child, and this is so much more… a chance to sit at the knee of an entire nation.

    What an incredibly proud and humbling experience.
