FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - A national, non-profit group called "StoryCorps" is in Fort Wayne to record, share and preserve the stories of Americans from all backgrounds and beliefs.

StoryCorps will be at the downtown library in Fort Wayne until the end of the month before it goes on the next leg of its nation-wide tour.

And you do the interview with a friend.

Whitney Henry-Lester with the StoryCorps says, “They sit down and have a conversation about whatever they want. They get 40 minutes. It gets recorded on audio -- they get a CD copy of it when they're done. And a copy gets archived in the Library of Congress so that their great-great-great-great grandchildren will be able to listen to it."

To reserve a spot to tell your story, call toll-free, 24-hours a day, at 1-800-850-4406.
