Listening = Love, This Thanksgiving

This year, the day after Thanksgiving marks the 5th annual National Day of Listening, started by the acclaimed oral history nonprofit StoryCorps.

The holiday is an effort to encourage all Americans to honor a friend, a loved one, or a member of their community by interviewing them about their lives. You can record your interview using equipment that most people already have–cell phone, tape recorder, computer, or even pen and paper.

A  free interview guide with tips and instructions is available at The National Day of Listening.
