Again this year, #TheGreatListen is back.

StoryCorps, the pioneering oral history project, announces The Great Thanksgiving Listen 2017, which will engage high school students across America in recording conversations with a grandparent or another elder over the holiday weekend.

More than 100,000 Americans took part in the drive to preserve the stories and voices of an entire generation over the Thanksgiving weekend. 75,000+ interviews have been collected since the inaugural Thanksgiving weekend in 2015

Using the free StoryCorps mobile app, participants will upload their interviews to StoryCorps.me and they will be archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.

Be sure to listen to Storycorps every week on WITF part of your Friday Morning Edition.
