On Friday, November 28th, the day after Thanksgiving, StoryCorps asks all Americans to take an hour to record an interview with a loved one, using recording equipment that is readily available in most homes, such as computers, SmartPhones or tape recorders. Tens of thousands of Americans have participated in the National Day of Listening since 2008 and educators and community organizations have incorporated StoryCorps' interviewing techniques into their programs. There is a handy-dandy free guide full of great questions to bring out great stories from the people you care about. Talking together helps humans connect and understand our family members, our friends, and our community. Learn more.
If you just have to go Black Friday shopping, then share the conversation questions during your Thanksgiving Day meal. You're sure to learn something you didn't know - because you never thought to ask or share.
