StoryCorps, a nonprofit that captures and preserves stories of everyday Americans, will return to Colorado Springs to record interviews from April 30 through May 11 at Library 21C, 1175 Chapel Hills Drive. The 12-day stop is co-hosted by 91.5 KRCC and the Pikes Peak Library District. StoryCorps' Military Voices Initiative allows veterans, service members and military families to share their stories. "In doing so we honor their voices, amplify their experiences and let them know that we — as a nation — are listening," notes StoryCorps in a release.

Two people can record a conversation with one another about who they are, what they've learned in life and how they want to be remembered, the release said. A StoryCorps facilitator guides them, and a complimentary CD is given to participants at the end of each 40-minute session. A second copy is archived at the Library of Congress.

The mobile booth will record stories weekdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sign up at 800/850-4406.
