We're talking about stories this week. The StoryCorps project is coming to Alabama in November. Zachary Barr is an advance coordinator for the project. He came by Alabama Public Radio to help us prepare for the StoryCorps Mobile Booth visit, and then he spent a little time in the production studio talking about the project and what it means to you. Storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham has a few words about the importance of recording those family stories. Plus, we have a look at events from the APR Events Calendar.
