Pittsburgh extravaganza

Posted on Sunday, June 11th, 2006.


Our StoryBooth has now moved to Pittsburgh, PA and will be stationed in front of the city’s Carnegie Library until July 2nd. Over the weekend, while StoryCorps was recording people’s story, the public library celebrated storytelling with their Annual Summer Reading Extravaganza. Across the street, people converged on Schenley Plaza to celebrate the transformation of the space from parking lot to lush green lawn. For the occasion, the public was treated to the sound and sight of marching bands, human statues, circus performances, live jazz and reggae, puppet shows and free carousel rides. During one of their lunch breaks, facilitators Michael Ramberg and Nadja Middleton decided to go for a quick spin!
