EVERYONE HAS A STORY- Everyone has a story to tell.  And that’s the whole idea behind StoryCorps.  It’s a non-profit organization that travels the country and records people telling their stories in a specially- designed mobile recording studio in an Airstream trailer.  Well StoryCorps has made it to Shreveport and has parked it’s mobile studio at the Shreve Memorial Library’s  Broadmoor Branch where it will be recording oral histories for the next 30 days.
