His StoryCorps project's mission is to provide people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories about their lives. Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 45,000 interviews. They are all preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, and many have aired on NPR's Morning Edition. David Isay has written a new book, "Ties That Bind: Stories of Love and Gratitude From the First Ten Years of StoryCorps".</p> Wed, 18 Dec 2013 14:00:00 +0000 Laura Knoy 40314 at http://nhpr.org StoryCorps Founder David Isay 2013 Holiday Books Show http://nhpr.org/post/2013-holiday-books-show <p>Two New Hampshire independent booksellers give us their picks for the best reads of 2013.
