For four weeks during the fall of 2014, NPR and WGVU brought the StoryCorps mobile booth to the Grand Rapids Art Museum, and we recorded West Michigan stories as part of the largest oral history project ever undertaken. Some stories make you laugh, and some make you think. They touch you. They provide you with a fresh perspective. They are extraordinary stories from everyday people - told in their own voices.
