Stories have the power to foster empathy, inspire the imagination, and connect us all in a uniquely human way. Inspired by StoryCorps, BoiseSpeaks invites community members to share their true life stories with a library staff member, close friend, or family member as a guide. Storytelling participants can select questions from our curated prompts or answer their own. All interviews will be archived in the American Folklife Archive at the Library of Congress and can be shared with friends, family and beyond. Visit Us on StoryCorps
