Highlights

On May 19, 2005, the first two StoryCorps MobileBooths embarked on cross-country journeys, collecting the stories of everyday Americans in towns and cities nationwide.

The tour started in Washington, DC, where the MobileBooths were stationed in front of the Library of Congress for ten days. From Washington, the MobileBooths set out in opposite directions across the country–one taking an eastern route and the other covering the western states.

During the first six months on the road, the StoryCorps MobileBooths visited 25 towns and cities and 16 states. The first-person accounts that emerge are a record of the way we live today -- and how we got here.
